While they were still speaking about this,
he stood in their midst and said to them,
“Peace be with you.”

Luke 24 : 35 – 48

April 22, 2012 Bible Reading and Gospel

Jesus promised his disciples peace: “Peace I give you.” (John 14:27). He would give them his peace – a peace not of this world. If we are convinced of his love, what have we to fear? If we are convinced that he is with us, why be anxious about anything? So he asks his disciples, “Why are you troubled?” They were witnesses to his love on the cross and the glory of his resurrection. They were witnesses to his power and his goodness. If God is for us, who can be against us?   

Am I troubled? What weighs on my  heart and mind? What robs me of my sleep and peace? We need to give it to Jesus. We need to remind ourselves of his love and presence and his gift of peace. As often as worries assail us, we need to go to Jesus and meditate on these things.  

The truths of our faith need to become deep convictions that form our heart, mind and desires. This process passes through prayer and meditation. We need to go over the truths of our faith again and again in his presence until they become second nature to us, where we think and act spontaneously from the perspective of a profound faith.
