( I Tim. 2:2-3) Our Lord lived a quiet, simple, holy life, though He is the Word, the Light, the Truth, and the Savior of mankind, He chose to be meek and lowly. His ministry, unlike the charismatic preachers we see and hear today, was not filled with fanfare and He often instructed those He healed, to tell no one. Yet Jesus Christ changed the world more than any pompous ruler or great empire that this world has ever known. We cannot go wrong in this life by following his perfect example. “Study to be quiet, and do your own business, and work with your own hands, as we command you.” ( I Thess. 4:11) To live a calm, quiet life is not something that comes natural to man. We must study and work to control our mind and body to achieve such a life. We should work with quietness and not grow weary with well doing. (II Thess. 3:12-13) Contrary to what some may believe, the world often notices a quiet holy life more than they will notice a loud boisterous one. At least they will notice it in a very different way and hopefully be more impressed by it. Although I must admit I am not a good example for a calm peaceful life, I get very impatient at stop lights, but I'm trying to do better by being more calm and quiet, as I see the end swiftly approaching. First Peter 3:4 tells us that a woman of a meek and quiet spirit is of a great price in the sight of the Lord. A few verses down, He gives Sara as an example. Christianity should be a state of simplicity, calm, peace, and quietness, for what have we to dread or fear? If we be in Christ, we shall all be made alive. (I Cor. 15:22-23) If God be for us, who can be against us? (Rom. 8:31)
