Unconditional love is loving your kids for who they are, not for what they do… it isn’t something you will achieve every minute of every day. But it is the thought we must hold in our hearts every day. - Stephanie Marston
"Christ is our peace...and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, by abolishing the law with its commandments and regulations...to create in himself one new man out of the two, thus making peace, and in this one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility." (Ephesians 2:14-16)
Dario was a young Bosnian-Croat soldier. He shared his experiences as a commander during the war....three years of killing, carnage, rape and plunder. Land mines exploded at his feet by day and in his head at night. His private horror was unspeakable. Dario wrote a letter: 'I asked a German missionary if God can forgive even so big sins like mine. He answered that Jesus pays some 2,000 years ago ALL the sins from this world. That night I fall upon my knees, begging from God to forgive me and change my life. When I wake up next morning, I felt very strange deep peace and joy inside me. I wanted to share that joy with Jesus with others.'
Christ is the only solution for the Jew and Gentile, the Muslim, Arab and Serb. And for you. What steps can you take to overcome any walls of hostility in your life?
