The Conditional and Unconditional Peace (Morning)
John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
Twins, Reyna and Irene, have their birthday today. A week before her birthday, Reyna asked her father to buy her a children’s book. Instead, on her birthday, he gave her a necklace. Although she still received her gift, she received it unenthusiastically. She’s not happy with it. Irene, on the other hand, felt grateful. Indeed she had another gift in mind. Nevertheless, she was content with her gift. The same necklace as her twin sister. She enjoyed her time with her family, her father, and mother, and her twin sister. She treasured it. She thanked God because of it.
These twins tell us invaluable experience. They share the same parents, they received the same gifts, and yet, they responded differently. Many people think they would acquire happiness only if they received their wishes. But there are people that quite content with everything that they own. Even if things don’t turn as they please. They are people who solely depend on their lives on God’s cause and always searching for His peace and joy.
This emphasizes the importance of attaching ourselves to God, attending morning prayer and altar, join cell groups, and have mass every Saturday and Sunday. In return, He will fill our hearts with unconditional peace. A peace that knows no boundaries. A peace that could overcome the darkness in our hearts.
There are TWO KINDS OF PEACE, the CONDITIONAL PEACE, and UNCONDITIONAL PEACE.
1. What kind of peace do you have in your heart?
2. In your own words, what makes unconditional peace so important?
3. What do you have in mind to apply today’s rhema in your day-to-day life?
“O good Father, we are blessed because You always be our dependable and reliable LORD. We want to attach ourselves to You and feel Your divine grace and joy in our hearts and lives. Regardless of our dire situation, we still firmly believe, we have Your peace in our hearts and minds. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.”
