Peace

"Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."  John 14:27

The term Advent comes from the Latin word adventus which means, "to wait."  Advent is a time when we prepare to celebrate and remember the first coming of Christ.  It is also a time when we are reminded of our need to prepare for the second coming of Christ at the end of time as we know it.

The first Sunday of the Advent Season is the Sunday of Hope.  Christ was the fulfillment of the hope of not only the Jewish people, but He became the fulfillment of hope for all the world.

This second Sunday of Advent is the Sunday of Peace.  Christ Jesus has brought to us a peace that passes all understanding.  A peace that is not dependent upon our circumstances.  And, one day, when He comes again, He will create a world of perfect peace.

"And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”  Revelation 21:4

May you have the most peaceful week you've ever had in your life.
