Reflection – Peace promise

During our lifetime we all make promises, and with the best intentions. The chances are, however, that for one reason or another we break our promise, all part of being human. That is why the promises made by God are so sure and strong and we can rely on them.

My favourite assurance of God’s faithfulness is in the Gospel of St John, Chapter 14, verse 27 which says:
“ Peace I bequeath to you, my own peace I give you. A peace the world cannot give. This is my gift to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.”

We can rest on that promise and, particularly in these days, that is a great strength.
