Instrument: How To Make Opposites Attract

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy;
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
Amen.

Prayer of St. Francis

Amen.

Feast: How To Be Peace in War

Feasting is a form of spiritual warfare.

In the Christian/Jewish religious calendar we have more feasts than fasts. This is a good thing. I’d much rather feast than fast.

You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies. You honor me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings.

Psalm 23:5 NLT

Anthem or How To Make a Declaration

He spake, and straightaway the celestial choir
In hymns of joy, unknown before, conspire
The praises of redeeming love they sang
And heaven’s whole orb with alleluias rang
God’s highest glory was their anthem still
Peace upon earth and unto men goodwill

Christians Awake

I love Christmas carols. I’ve never heard this one, I love the lyrics when I came across them.

Divine

Oh holy night!
The stars are brightly shining
It is the night of the dear Savior’s birth!
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
Till he appear’d and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn!

Fall on your knees
Oh hear the angel voices
Oh night divine
Oh night when Christ was born
Oh night divine
Oh night divine

Truly He taught us to love one another
His law is love and His gospel is peace
Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother
And in His name all oppression shall cease
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
Let all within us praise His holy name

I love this song. It’s melody has always seemed beautiful and a little melancholy. I was always attracted to the melody and never really paid attention to the words. Apparently, I was missing out.

First verse, “Long lay the world in sin and error pining, Till he appear’d and the soul felt its worth.” I love the imagery painted here!

The entire second is a Gospel bomb! “His law is love and His gospel is peace.” How sweet is He that He makes His law love and the good news that He brings is peace?
