Pastor Bill's Reflections
Read: Colossians 1:15-23
May the Holy Spirit touch us during this Pentecost season,
We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. —Romans 5:1
The Kamppi Chapel of Silence in Helsinki, Finland, stands out in its urban setting. The curved structure, covered with wood, buffers
the noise from the busy city outside. Designers created the chapel as a quiet space and a “calm environment for visitors to compose
themselves.” It’s a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Many people long for peace, and a few minutes of silence may soothe our minds. But the Bible teaches that real peace—peace with
God—comes from His Son. The apostle Paul said, “Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus
Christ” (Rom. 5:1). Without Christ, we are enemies of God because of our sin. Thankfully, accepting Jesus’ sacrifice reconciles us to God and
ends the hostility that existed between us (Col. 1:19-21). He now sees us as Christ presents us—“holy, and blameless, and above
reproach” (v. 22).
Having peace with God does not ensure problem-free living. However, it does steady us during difficult times. Jesus told His followers, “In the world you will have tribulation,” but He also said, “In
Me you may have peace” (John 16:33). Because of Christ, the true peace of God can fill our hearts (Col. 3:15).
Father, we long for Your peace in the midst of our turmoil. Please help us to rest in You. Peace floods the soul when Christ rules
