The In-Breaking Kingdom // Peace Breaks In // Luke 2:8-14

Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.
— Mark Twain

The world passes its days in malice and envy. We are ever at war with one another, trapped in an endless cycle of hostility and recompense. But in Jesus, peace breaks in. He swallows the offense of every sin into his person, burying it all in the unsearchable depths of his mind. And we have this mind among us, those with whom God is pleased. In the advent of Christ, forgiveness reigns.
