The Peace of Christ

August 29, 2010

“The peace of Christ is the peace of trust in the cause we serve, when service seems to fail of its end.

 It is the peace of confidence in God when all the forces of the universe seem working for ends that are undivine.

It is the peace which can accept unexplained mysteries, which can bear heartbreaking sorrows, which can see natural instincts thwarted, holy aspirations unrealized, Christlike purposes broken off, and yet be unperturbed.

It is the peace of a Paul rejected by his countrymen.

 It is the peace of all those who have given their lives for causes too high and sacred for immediate success and who yet have been able to believe that even their failures were being overruled by God for good.”
