There are deep fault lines in our world and the trials of our day are revealing them. But this week at Speak Life we have been lifting up the One whose standards we’re all using, whether we know it or not!
It’s Jesus who has taught the world that rulers should be servants, that they should put themselves under the law, that they should not ‘lord it over’ others but instead sacrifice themselves. It’s Jesus who teaches us that we are all one, whatever our race or social standing. It’s Jesus who says ‘put away the sword, for those who live by the sword will die by the sword.’
Incredibly our world, built by Jesus’ message, still remembers the teaching even if they’ve forgotten the source. Here at Speak Life we long to remind them! And to remind the world that there isn’t just a righteous standard over us, but a loving Saviour who offers to be with us.
Perhaps you can share some of these resources with your friends and family and, during this divided time, point to the Prince of Peace.
