Love, Peace and Joy. Acknowledge the King.

Written by

This time of year, many people appear to welcome love, peace, and joy.

Bird1

 

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful. Colossians 3:15

While they jostle and stir to buy presents and make special meals, they convey little about Christ.

Bird2

Pursue peace with all men, and the sanctification without which no one will see the Lord. Hebrews 12:14

What do they attribute to him during this time?

Bird3

Amidst the beauty of creation, they are overloaded with planning and preparing.

What is to blame?

Bird4

Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God, which he obtained with his own blood. Acts 20:28

- It’s not hardware that’s the problem – cars, computers, phones, TVs, switches, outlets.

- Nor is it software – computer programs like microsoft, chrome, firefox, google, windows.

- Neither is it firmware – instructions that control those computing devices.

Bird5

 

The problem usually resides with the wetware – the humans.

As they bustled, hassled, trodden, and prepared:

Bird6

We – as Christ’s disciples – patiently waited, and still do, for the time when our minds, bodies, and souls perfectly embrace the love, peace, and joy that is promised.

Bird7

 

Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Luke 12:32

And yet, we too are still maturing.

Our wetware continues to ripen and bud.

Bird8

Truth is, we’re all still learning.

Bird9

We don’t always know what’s best for us.

Bird10

 

We study, absorb, and learn as we go.

Until the day we delight with pleasure in the presence of the King.

Bird11

 

And when the chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory. 1 Peter 5:4

The King who they appear to honor, but whom was overlooked.

Bird12

He lives in us. Romans 8:10, 2 Corinthians 4:6-7, Galatians 2:20, Galatians 4:19.

Let us be at peace among ourselves in all things.

Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, then My servants would be fighting so that I would not be handed over to the Jews; but as it is, My kingdom is not of this realm. John 18:36

And safeguard your minds, bodies, and souls to abide in love, peace, and joy.

    I do accept as true with all the ideas you've introduced on your post.
    They're really convincing and can definitely work.
    Still, the posts are very brief for newbies.
    May you please lengthen them a little from next time?
    Thank you for the post.

    Hi there, I think your site could be having
    internet browser compatibility problems. Whenever I take a look at your site in Safari, it looks fine
    however when opening in Internet Explorer, it's got some overlapping issues.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Aside from that,
    excellent site!
