Today’s devotion is based on Romans 16:1-5, “I recommend to you our sister Phoebe, who serves the church at Cenchreae. Receive her in the Lord’s name, as God’s people should, and give her any help she may need from you; for she herself has been a good friend to many people and also to me. I send greetings to Priscilla and Aquila, my fellow¬-workers in the service of Christ Jesus; they risked their lives for me. I am grateful to them—not only I but all the Gentile churches as well. Greetings also to the church that meets in their house.”
We Christians have all the peace of Christ with which to greet one another, and so we bear the peace won by Jesus on the cross for the world to the world and each other. Such wide and deep consequences from such a very simple and very human act. Bear the peace well today, for you live in the peace borne by Christ for you.
Please pray with me the prayer for today. Heavenly Father, creator, and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen, give me your peace today, so that I may bear it well for my brothers and sisters. All glory and honor are given to you. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
