Re­flec­tions on the good news

Prince Albert Daily Herald - - OPINION - JOEL DUBOURT

The Ad­vo­cate, the Holy Spirit that the Fa­ther will send in my name-He will teach you ev­ery­thing and re­mind you of all that I told you. Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you. Not as the World gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be trou­bled or afraid. You heard me tell you, “I am go­ing away and I am com­ing back to you.” Matthew 14: 26-28

As Chris­tians, we be­lieve in God, the Holy Trin­ity, the Fa­ther, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Je­sus, the son, came in obe­di­ence to the Fa­ther to die on the cross for our sins. Through Him we have sal­va­tion for our souls. The Holy Spirit re­minds us of this fact and of all that Je­sus Christ taught his dis­ci­ples. Re­mind­ing as­sumes that we have read the Holy Scrip­tures, the Gospels, the let­ters, and even the Old Tes­ta­ment. If we have not read or at least heard the Good News, we can­not be re­minded of them. Je­sus prom­ises us His peace, not wordly peace, but the peace in our hearts and minds that sur­passes un­der­stand­ing.

Come to­gether to pray for the peace that God gives us if we de­sire it. Look for ways to gather in prayer over and above our Sun­day litur­gies.
