Today the pastor focuses on a benediction that is a prayer of peace. It is found in Hebrews 13: 20 – 21. The writer closes his letter to the persecuted people with words to help them understand they can live a life of peace – a good life. Undying faith, worshipping the Lord, and doing good in the world leads to a good life. So, my beloved, what is a good life that pleases God?
Contrary to popular belief, the good life is not defined as a a life filled with material possessions. The good life is one that is steeped in a meaningful connection to the God of peace. This is a peace that dwells within no matter what is happening externally. The struggles we encounter in life are no match for the peace we experience when the Lord is our closest ally.
God’s resurrection power raised His Son from the grave. Surely, His power is more than enough for us to rebound from any knockout punch life manages to land. Because of Him we can get back up again and courageously face whatever lies ahead.
We can live a good life because the Lord is our shepherd. The Holy One guides us through life’s puzzling maze. God will help us find our way and live a life that is complete. A life of completeness is possible when we live His vision for our lives. Life is good when we simply say, “To God be the glory, Amen and Amen!”
