Perfect Peace

Perfect Peace

There’s a wise and ancient recipe:

Desire nothing

and you shall have peace

Wise, yes

And simple too

But incomplete

Here’s how to complete it:

Desire nothing but God

and you shall have everything.

Today is Pentecost Sunday, commemorating the day when the Holy Spirit came down and filled Christ’s followers, making complete Isaiah’s promise.

  8. Amen, brother! Our Lord is surely more than enough: even if it takes loosing absolutely everything to realize that it’s a fantastic outcome. He knows all, can do all, has done all in the Lord Jesus Christ and works only absolute good: seek, follow, depend upon fully, you will not be dissatisfied!
