Listening to Jesus, Day 9 – Living in the Light of Peace

August 16, 2015

How can I set aside the whims and demands of others that seem to lead away from a satisfying life? Jesus knew there are those would would influence me to ignore God’s commandments and live counter-productively, destabilizing my own peace of mind. Wasn’t Jesus tempted by the supreme tempter? Jesus knew God’s ways are the best ways, and the tempter’s ways lead to unhappiness. I cannot ignore the commandments, ignore my fellow man, and ignore God and live a satisfying life. God’s ways are best for living in peace. Honor the Lord, give thanks, and reach out to all in love. They may not reach back, but I am backed by God. Honor the light within what makes no demands and has no expectations.

(Philippians 4: 6-7) The peace of God that passes all understanding will keep your hearts and minds.

(John 7: 38) He that believes, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

(Ephesians 5: 18-20) Be filled with the spirit and sing in your heart. Give thanks to the Father.
