In this day and age, the phrase ‘Peace be with you’ is often met with extreme skepticism. When the daily headlines are filled with news of bombings, cultural and religious fighting, racial and gender conflict, national disasters and fear-mongering, where are we supposed to find peace? Today, despair, depression and narcissism are more the norm than is peace. Is this the way we are intended to live, with shattered expectations? As Christians, our expectations will be realized when we ‘walk the talk’ – when we believe and live out the promises of God.
Based on Psalm 118:14-29 and John 20:19-31.
