VerseD: Revelation 3:20

Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.

Jesus invites us into community with Himself and with the Church. We are not meant to live nor worship alone.

This Sunday at Church: Pray for Ukraine

It may or may not be World War III. We should be praying regardless. War is never good, but we can be a light in this time and lift up the Church there and the people who are and will be suffering.


For this Sunday here’s what you can do: Pray for Ukraine. There’s so much going on. I have been praying a lot. I also have a friend who is stuck in Ukraine.  He’s an American.  I’m praying for his safety. Most of all I am praying for the civilians in all this.

VerseD: Proverbs 29:25

The fear of man lays a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is safe.

Proverbs 29:25, ESV

When we follow along with the crowd or are too afraid to stand for what is true and right because of the culture, we risk offending our Creator even more.

The worst the world can do to us is kill us, and then we are with God, anyway.

VerseD: 1 Peter 5:10

And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.

1 Peter 5:10, ESV

What peace and joy we can find in our daily lives and when facing the problems of life knowing that our God has chosen us and will bring us to His side in eternity.

VerseD: Isaiah 55:1-2

“Come, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy? Listen diligently to me, and eat what is good, and delight yourselves in rich food.”

Isaiah 55:1‭-‬2, ESV

What peace we have knowing our Lord has promised and provides all our needs, especially salvation.

Let us feast on the promises and grace of God.

VerseD: Proverbs 21:21

Whoever pursues righteousness and kindness will find life, righteousness, and honor.

Proverbs 21:21, ESV

Living a life of peace fosters peace. Seeking peace with and for God through Jesus Christ brings eternal life and possibly life for others to His glory.

VerseD: Luke 16:10

“One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much.”

Luke 16:10, ESV

We are trusted more – by others and God – when we are faithful in various matters.

It also gives us peace knowing we have been faithful and true, especially as we trust in the only one who has been Faithful and True (Revelation 19:11).

VerseD: John 15:5

I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.

John 15:5, ESV

In Christ, all things are possible.

Even if that means merely getting out of bed in the morning, or sharing the gospel with someone, or doing something you’ve never done.

Mostly, we find peace with God. Live in Christ.

VerseD: Psalm 46:10

“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”

Psalm 46:10, ESV


Be calm.

Have peace.

Peace knowing that God is God, that He has everything under control.

And others will wonder at the peace you have.
