The Christian Gospel is a message of peace for all with God. It’s inclusive of all gender, race, class and age. It’s a story that brings us into relationship with God and with each other…and within that context it provides the true framework for peaceable living.
However its not just a message of words, rather its one of lifestyle also. Turn the other cheek if someone slaps you. Walk the extra mile. Forgive those who harm you. Accept God’s forgiveness for ourselves.
But its also more than just a lifestyle. It’s one of experiencing Gods presence within our midst through the presence of the Holy Spirit who promises to move through, over and well up within us…Within this story of hope, we are promised new life and not only new / eternal life…but also are called to partake in the re-creation process of being peace agents on earth, just as Christ is in heaven.
