Jerusalem Lion

The most violent battles happen between the ears, and the most valiant get to celebrate victories when thoughts are taken captive with Truth.
“For God DID NOT send His Son into the world to CONDEMN the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” – John 3:17
We do not have to keep living the life that causes us to condemn ourselves.  We can choose to live a life led by Truth and walk in peace.  Real peace!  It’s not a conjured up mindset but a heart overflowing.
We can know Peace.
“My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” – John 14:27b
Let’s choose to be the valiant.  Let’s accept that we are accepted.  Let’s allow Truth to dictate our thoughts and set our feet on the path of peace.
Be not afraid, I give.. not as the world gives”.  We are no longer the condemned but the redeemed.
Clinging – Letting Truth be my guide.

“[Advent] is a time of quiet anticipation.  If Christ is going to come again into our hearts, there must be repentance.  Without repentance, our hearts will be so full of worldly things that there will be “no room in the inn” for Christ to be born again.

…We have the joy not of celebration, which is the joy of Christmas, but the joy of anticipation.” – John R. Brokhoff
