“Now, may the Lord himself, the Lord of peace, pour into you his peace in every circumstance and in every possible way. The Lord’s tangible presence be with you all.” (II Thessalonians 3: 16, the Passion Translation)
Paul preached and taught widely and enthusiastically. He led people who were from different locations and having varied perspectives, to awake to the Christ-message of God’s goodness and healing power.
And Paul was also generous with his blessings. His prayers were beautiful blankets of sweet salvation cast upon his followers, leaving them with an awareness not only of the Word of God, but of the Spirit of Love which always accompanies His ideas.
We can receive this benediction today. We can eagerly and gratefully open ourselves up to receive true peace. We can acknowledge joyously that no matter what appears to be confronting us, or how far from certain we seem to be, God’s presence is with us, and it can be felt.
Paul knew that this tangible presence was with him and with all. He felt it, demonstrated it, was set free physically and mentally, by this awareness.
And Paul’s message begins with this word: Now. So, let us now feel that peace, straight from God, to our open hearts and our willing minds.
