I had a stirring prophetic revelation today of how deeply, absolutely and completely Christ is our Peace. He is not just the terminus of sin and sorrow; of grief and despair. He is the restorer of our splendor, the One who returns to our tarnished life its luster, its lushness, its juicy promise; its vibrant harmony by His own goodness.
His peace comforts and caresses but it also creates the future we hope for. It is a trustworthy peace.
The Great Preacher of peace and love came for you, and His voice found those of you who were near and those who were far away. By Him both have access to the Father in one Spirit. And so you are no longer called outcasts and wanderers but citizens with God’s people, members of God’s holy family, and residents of His household. You are being built on a solid foundation: the message of the prophets and the voices of God’s chosen emissaries with Jesus, the Anointed Himself, the precious cornerstone. The building is joined together stone by stone—all of us chosen and sealed in Him, rising up to become a holy temple in the Lord. In Him you are being built together, creating a sacred dwelling place among you where God can live in the Spirit.-Ephesians 2:17-21 (The Voice)
