There can be a temptation to believe that all in the gospel is about Jesus only talking about peace, how believers will be always feeling calm. The challenge is that there are times when standing up for what is right means standing alone. While Jesus is always with us, it can feel like we are alone when others are against us. But if the choice is standing against evil with Jesus, or seeking peace at all costs, seeking the virtue of courage from the Holy Spirit to stand with Jesus is the most desirable.
