A Violent Peace


He came blameless to the world
Setting an example of how we should live
He was persecuted, whipped and beaten
For what “we” did
He died a violent death
Hanging on a tree
Hands and feet pierced by nails
A mocking crown of thorns on His Head
Put to death by His own people
They called Him The King of the Jews


He loved us enough to take our punishment on Himself
He overcame the grave
He ascended into heaven…but what does “he ascended” mean except that
He also descended to the lower, earthly regions? (Ephesians 4:9)
Do you think it means He went through Hell for us – atoning for our sin debt?
He came in peace
He lived in peace
He died so that we might experience that same peace
The Peace that surpasses all understanding
He Arose and His Holy Spirit
Is alive and well
Living on the inside of all those who believe
