How Will You Be an Instrument of God's Peace?

Here’s why I’m addressing the fact of our mortality: Scripture teaches that “through fear of death,” humans are “subject to lifelong slavery” (Hebrews 2:15). In what ways does the fear of death produce such bondage?

The Children of Ukraine Are Paying the True Cost of War: How to Be a Peacemaker Where You Live

It’s been almost seventeen months since Russia first invaded Ukraine, and the nature of the headlines hasn’t changed much.

This week alone, we’ve been greeted with news of Russia bombing the ports in Odesa, threatening foreign vessels in the Black Sea, and Vladimir Putin withdrawing from an upcoming meeting with world leaders in South Africa for fear of being arrested and put on trial for war crimes.

The Path from Anxiety and Stress to Lasting Peace

The Path from Anxiety and Stress to Lasting Peace

How can we best navigate the anxieties and stresses of these days? Habakkuk’s testimony is one of my favorite paragraphs in Scripture. It begins by describing dire circumstances: “Though the fig tree should not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines, the produce of the olive fail and the fields yield no food, the flock be cut off from the fold and there be no herd in the stalls” (Habakkuk 3:17). In his day, this would mean the loss of every means of sustenance. But the prophet responded: “Yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will take joy in the God of my salvation” (v. 18).

The Path to God's 'Perfect Peace'

The Path to God's 'Perfect Peace'

When the new year began, did you know that it would be dominated by this pandemic? Could you see this four months ago? Can you see four months from today? Neither can I. The good news is that we can turn to wisdom beyond ourselves. The prophet Isaiah said of Jesus: “The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord” (Isaiah 11:2). Jesus demonstrated such wisdom and foreknowledge throughout his earthly ministry.
