Sept 29 – Peace on Earth

On August 6,1945 Captain Robert Lewis was the co-pilot of the bomber which dropped the atomic bomb on the Japanese city of Hiroshima. An estimated 200,000 people died in the attacks. Many years later, when Lewis was asked if he remembered his reaction on that fateful day, he remarked: “ I wrote down the words, My God, what have we done?” Last month, a Hiroshima Day memorial was held in Charlottetown. Committee organizer Olivia White said, “The commemoration is … to call attention to the work being done towards a nuclear-war-free world.” These are worthy aspirations, so far not reached. But while man cannot bring peace, God offers personal peace for those who have Christ in their lives. Paul wrote of this, saying “Therefore, being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus. Christ.” And to believers, he promises , “the peace of God that surpasses all understanding… through Jesus Christ.”
