Come To Rule with Justice and In Peace

Reflection by Jennifer H.

As the time of Advent continues, let us prepare for the coming of Jesus.  It is meant to be a time of joy and celebration.  Part of this is to allow Jesus to come in to our hearts and rule with justice and peace.  The kind of peace I am referring to is the one where we are content with God coming into our life—especially during the times of trials and tribulations. During this time, we should find peace in our relationship with Christ, and trust Him.  Justice is conveyed through the coming of Jesus because through Him we can be restored.  The coming of the Messiah is fair and honest and His coming gives new hope to the world.  In our world, it is often difficult to understand the justices that God gives us. God reveals justice to us through the challenges He gives us.  Coming to earth, He allows justice to become known because through His ruling of our hearts, justice will be achieved.
