Hallelujah, Happy Easter

“Governments and kingdoms of men have tried to exterminate the Truth, but all have failed. Christianity is a religion of peace and love, but it’s also a warrior’s faith. It isn’t a blanket to hide under, it’s a battle flag to march under. It doesn’t hide us from the pain and suffering that this world has to offer — it commands us to endure it, confront it, and find the beauty in it all.

Easter reminds us that there is an end to the suffering and a purpose in the pain. Jesus Christ rose from the dead. He triumphed over evil. And He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead.”

    I enjoyed his post, and the part you quoted was my favorite part. Especially this: “Christianity is a religion of peace and love, but it’s also a warrior’s faith. It isn’t a blanket to hide under, it’s a battle flag to march under.”

    That actually reminded me of Jesus’ words in Matthew 10:34: Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. A sword is a weapon of a warrior, and Jesus, out of His great love, fought and won the ultimate battle by His death and resurrection, that we through faith may have peace, clothed in His righteousness.

    Which reminds me of Romans 5:1-5: Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

    Finally, not to put man’s words above inspired Scripture — God’s words — but the post called to mind a bumper sticker I’ve seen before, that I think does accurately reflect Truth:

    Know Jesus, Know Peace
    No Jesus, No Peace

    Thanks for the link.
