What is Peace?

on

“There is no way to peace along the way of safety. For peace must be dared, it is itself the great venture and can never be safe. Peace is the opposite of security. To demand guarantees is to want to protect oneself. Peace means giving oneself completely to God’s commandment, wanting no security, but in faith and obedience laying the destiny of the nations in the and of Almighty God, not trying to direct it for selfish purposes. Battles are won, not with weapons, but with God. They are won when the way leads to the cross.” -Deitrich Bonhoeffer at the Conference at Fano, as Hitler takes power

It would seem to me then, that peace takes bravery. And bravery consists of honor and passion for a cause. What better description of a life for Christ is there than that?
