As the Word of God was spoken publicly this morning, the Holy Spirit highlighted one specific word that invited my contemplation down a path I hadn’t traveled before.
And let the peace of Christ “RULE” in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. (Colossians 3:15 ESV)
Does peace rule in my heart? Is it so unwavering that daily worries avert at its sight? Is peace so so evidently ruling in my heart that in perilous moments my bystanders feel a contagiousness about it? Perhaps it doesn’t as it should…
To rule is to have control, and peace, in control, rules with a gentle hand. Will we let peace “rule” in our heart?
