October 29, 2020. Day 303: Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts.

“To live is Christ” gives us the peace of Christ as the new rule of our hearts. Because peace had the final say on the cross of Christ, peace will always have the final say in your crucified life. When everything around us demands conflict, stress, and despair, the King of our hearts reminds us that everything is under his command. You’re not failing, you’re flourishing. You’re not alone, you’re in Christ. You’re never defeated, never without hope and forever loved.

June 2, 2020. Day 154: I have overcome the world.

“To live is Christ” means our lives are joined to the conquering, victorious, Savior-King of our souls. Jesus is exactly what we need. Not a helper, not a partner, not a coach, not a boost to get us over the hump. No, he’s our overcomer. Which means winning only comes when we first admit that we are losers. Victory only comes when we are overcome by his grace. Peace is found in a person. And it’s not you.
