Day 23

I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. John 10:10 (ESV)

‘Peace on earth, good will to all people’, were words located in the context of occupation. People were desperate for a ‘saviour-liberator’. The ‘good news’ offer of full life for all does not mean that our walls and our updated defence capability will insulate us from the evils of war. The allure of war still inhabits the imagination of whole nations. The good news, though, is that love is strong enough to come in weakness, neutralising fears and offering openings towards greater understanding of each other. In offering love as antidote to the culture of death and hate, God gives rather than rob or steal. There lies our hope. This hope is grounded on God’s faithfulness. It is based on the possibilities of God irrespective of how things are. It thrives even in situations that can elicit utter hopelessness – for it is based upon God breaking into our midst to transform. Remember well!  

Lover-of-justice-and-peace, shape our consciences and hearts according to your way of just, peaceful and loving lives. Move us beyond fear to speak with compassionate courage and to act with both conviction and humility. Give us ears, eyes, hearts and voices to discern, respond and embody hope through our actions, in private and in public. Bless us with wholeness, and through your Spirit continue to sustain us in the face of powerful forces bent on denying life. Amen
[Rev Dr Michael Jagessar, Global and Intercultural Ministries of the United Reformed Church]
