‘…and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace…’ (Ephesians 6:15)
It might seem strange to some that in the middle of a passage that is speaking about spiritual warfare and the need to put on the whole armour of God, that suddenly we have this reference to the gospel of peace. But the peace being spoken of here is that shalom, that inner peace that we can only know through having Jesus Christ in our lives and as we play our part in building up the Kingdom of God in this world in which we live, it’s a peace that we all need to know. That sure and certain peace we can have knowing that in all we do each day and in all we undertake in God’s name, by His Spirit, Christ will be with us. In that peace we not only know the full love of Christ, but find hope and faith to be the Disciples that He has called us to be.
If there is any interest I’m looking to start a Zoom Bible discussion evening in the next few weeks. My plan would be to discuss the Bible passages that we looked at on the previous Sunday and just have a discussion about them in a bit more detail and end with 5 minutes or so of prayer. If you are interested please email me : Andrew.Graham@churchofscotland.org.uk I would need your email details to send you the Zoom link for you to join in. Each session would be no more than 40 minutes, as that’s the time limit I have on my zoom account, and could be on either an afternoon or evening.
