Rules for Living
It is so easy to get caught up in the emotions of the moment and make decisions that are inconsistent with the will of God. Panic, fear, anger, and other strong emotions do not lead to good decisions or Christian actions.
When we find ourselves overwhelmed by the events around us and the emotions within us, it’s time to stop and breathe. We need to both literally take a deep breath and also to breathe the Spirit of Christ.
As we gain the peace with comes from being in the presence of God, we can think more clearly. We can hear the voice of Christ and feel the leading of the Spirit guiding us to do the right thing, to do what’s good and loving. We are reminded to follow the example of Christ, who, when facing the cross, went into the Garden to pray, “Nevertheless, not my will, but thine be done.”
We live in tumultuous times. If we are to have peace, it must come from within, from our faith. So, stop and breathe the Spirit of God.
