And he said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace.”
The Gospel According to Luke (ESV)
Jesus is recorded as saying “go in peace” several times in the Gospels of Mark and Luke. In all the instances he says this to someone, it is in response to their faith in him to heal them or forgive their sins. This speaks to what happens in a persons life when they have been relieved of their burdens by Jesus. Whether it be sin sickness or physical ailment, they are told to go in peace.
When one comes in contact with the healing touch of Jesus they find a new sense of peace. They have peace knowing that body and soul have been healed by the great physician. He says “go in peace”, that implies action. He tells them; from here on out go forward in peace, knowing your burden has been lifted. And What a peace that is.
When we have come to Jesus and we have begun anew because of his forgiveness, we go in peace. We must go forward and teach others that they too can enjoy this peace that we have.
Today share your peace with someone else.
