While they were still talking about this, Jesus himself stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.”
A short but profound verse today. The resurrected Jesus comes to us and offers us peace: wholeness, restoration, contentment, security and life, and a freedom from sin, death and our brokenness. As part of this peace, he offers his presence through his Spirit, standing among us, supporting, guiding and experiencing life with us.
At the start of this day, remind yourself that you are not alone. God is with you. Take a moment to pause in his presence. Then bring to him those things that are worrying, challenging or disturbing you. Jesus, may we know your peace today as we walk with you.
