PLEASE READ THIS FIRST: Luke 2:25-32
What do you sense the Lord saying to you in this passage?
“Now let me, your servant, go in peace.” (Luke 2:29)
St. Augustine once said, ‘Our hearts find no rest until they rest in God!’
Like Simeon, we are rest-less until we experience God’s love through Jesus.
The Holy Spirit is at work in us too, prompting us to look for God and Jesus.
It seems to me that we all look for this kind of peace, but in the wrong places…
Only God and Jesus can put the heart at rest to give us deep down security and peace.
Jesus is for all people – Jews, non Jews, Christians, Muslims, Atheists… he is king over all!
He comes to us, and the Spirit prompts us towards him, he is what our heart is looking for.
And when we finally experience God’s love through Jesus, we find deep down peace.
We can R.I.P. while we live, and we can R.I.P. when we die.
For not only are we holding Jesus in our hearts, He is holding us in His!
We belong, body and soul, in life and in death, to our faithful Saviour Jesus Christ!
I sense the Lord asking me, am I resting peace since I have met him?
Are people sensing his peace in me, because I know to whom I belong?
Lord, I want to experience this peace deep down inside, a peace that assures me that – whether I live or die – I am secure in Your love.
