ANZAC Day is next week and it is often a time when the community pauses to reflect and to remember those who have given their lives in conflict in recent history to preserve the safety and freedom of people throughout the world. It is also a time to give thanks for those who are currently serving in our armed forces.
Sadly, there are many places experiencing conflict in the world today. The ongoing war in Ukraine and the recent unrest in Sudan are reminders that we live in a fallen world. All of us long for peace, whether in our own lives, the lives of those close to us or for those who are caught up in conflicts around the world.
ANZAC Day serves as a reminder that while we may hope and strive for peace now, only Jesus is able to bring true and lasting peace. When we put our trust in him we can enjoy peace with God now and the assurance of eternal life with him when we die. There is no greater or deeper peace than this.
