Silent Night, Peaceful Night

Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests. Luke 2:14 (New International Version)

It’s Christmas Day 2017.

Despite the rancor and strife in our world, I hope and pray for peace. The peace that the angels sang about on that Christmas night when God’s Christ came into our world. The peace we need in Washington, Pyongyang, the Middle East, and in our communities.

God showed us His/Her favor on that holy night in Bethlehem; and still that favor rests on us today-despite what people believe. God still offers is that peace; ours for the taking and living.

The night outside my window is silent. A quietness probably experienced by Joseph and Mary as they brought Jesus into the Universe.  Between Jesus’s first cries as his tiny body sucked in oxygen, and the angelic announcement, there was peace that holy night. There was a hush, a silence that covered the town like a Divine blanket. As the hymn writer penned, “all is calm, all is bright.”

As we celebrate the coming of God’s Christ into our Universe; maybe it wouldn’t hurt to have that silence, that peace. It just may what we need to have for a fitting abode for the Christ in our lives.

Silent night, peaceful night. Wouldn’t hurt. Peace!

About dangerouschristian

My name is Victor Reynolds. I'm a Christian who desires a more mystical approach to my spiritual life. I'm also a photographer as well who loves to create. I call myself "dangerous" because anyone-especially a Christian-who dares to be beyond the "norm" and allows to let the Christ live in them is dangerous.
