Northway Christian Church – Dallas, Texas
Day 3 – Sunday, May 17, 2015
The Proof of the Holy Spirit’s Presence is Peace

________________________________________________________

Scripture – John 14:27

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.

Thought

Love and peace are not tested by rhetorical phrases from pulpit or platform.  They are tested by the way we behave toward others who continually go astray and are at odds.  The test of our love and peace for another is in our behavior toward particular persons with whom we talk, walk, and work. To be concerned for these is the test of our love.  At the heart of that which makes for peace is a tender, forgiving love as Christ forgave and loved. (John M. Drescher)

Prayer

Holy Spirit, sent by the Father, ignite in us your holy fire;
strengthen your children with the gift of faith,
revive your Church with the breath of love,
and renew the face of the earth,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
