Although we, as Christians, know that wars will only cease when the Prince of Peace comes, we must "if it is possible, as far as it depends on [us], live at peace with everyone" (Romans 12:18). Those who have lived long enough to see many wars also know the high cost of peace we've enjoyed. Now once again, we find ourselves fighting an enemy-this time, a worldwide network of terrorists intent on causing our complete destruction.
We know that, indeed, "There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:…a time for war and a time for peace" (Ecclesiastes 3:1, 8b). But knowing that doesn't make living through a time of war easy.
In this time of war, God calls us to another kind of "time" as well-a time to think and live as citizens of heaven.
