Jakmes HendersonHello,

Surely we need peace in the world today.

What with the heightened tensions in the Middle East, the instability in Africa in places like Burundi, and the violence that is reported around us, the world seems a less safe place day by day.

This week Christians celebrate the Spirit of peace. The celebrations are called Pentecost, referring to the Greek word for "fifty". It's about an event that occurred 50 days after Jesus rose from the dead. Before he died Jesus had told his followers that he would leave his peace with them. How would he do this? After all, shortly after he said this, he was led away to be crucified so that we would come together and be reconciled to God.

What God did was to send the Spirit of Jesus into our lives at Pentecost. This Holy Spirit brings with him the peace of God, which is greater than anything we can possibly imagine. The problem for us is that, when we ignore the Spirit, we ignore the peace of God and war ensues.

How much we human beings need that peace!

Take the chance to go to church this weekend and celebrate Pentecost, and let the Spirit of peace affect your life.

Wherever we are, let's "be eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace" (Ephesians 4:3 ESV UK).

Best regards,                               
James
