Easter Imperatives - "Peace be with You!"

Pastor Wayne Braun started a new sermon series, "Easter Imperatives" with his message on 4/8/18, "Peace be with You!"  His message was based on John 20:19-23.  "On that evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being locked where the disciples were for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, "Peace be with you."  John 20:19.   We all have such locked doors that imprison our hearts.  So what is this peace Jesus so urgently wants to give us?  It means wholeness, completeness, security.  The peace Jesus offers is not a feeling.  God's peace is a gift we can always count on because the living Christ is always present with us and because of all that Jesus did for us.  God's peace doesn't change our circumstances - it changes us!
