Faith makes us walk with Jesus on the roads of this world, in the certainty that the power of His Spirit will bend the forces of evil, subjecting them to the power of God’s love.
Christian joy flows from listening to, and accepting, the Good News of the death and resurrection of Jesus. Whoever believes this message knows that life is born of the love of God the Father.
Evil never gives peace. It causes frenzy first then leaves bitterness. Instead, God’s voice never promises cheap, easily acquired joy. He invites us to go beyond our ego to find that true good: peace.
Jesus says to His disciples: “Whoever does not take up his cross and follow me is not worthy of me” (Mt 10:38). There is no true love without the cross, without a personal price to pay. When borne with Jesus, the cross is not scary because He's always at our side to help us.
