Go into peace
We say, ‘go in peace’
Jesus said, ‘go into peace’ (Mark 5:34, Luke 7:50, Luke 8:48)
‘Go into peace’ is subtly and helpfully different, even if the Bible translators, rightly, find it grammatically challenging.
Compared with 'Go in peace', ‘Go into peace’ is:
Less a feeling – More a journey
Less passive – More active
Less personal – More presence
In fact, it is more about a presence of peace that others notice and benefit from.
May we go into peace today, to love and serve the Lord.
