In heaven, telling you to “be at peace” will be like telling a healthy person here on earth to breathe. It will be natural – involuntary. You can’t stop yourself from breathing. Even if you try, you will start breathing again. Being at peace, having true joy and contentment here on earth is not natural. Our sinful life is like being in the depths of the sea. Separated from God we enter this world in the crushing blackness of the deep. And God says to you, “Breathe.” That is the unexpected gift. That is the grace of Baptism. You have life in the water.
The joy Paul has is that no matter what may come, no matter what burdens or persecution or execution comes his way, whether he finds himself in a time of need or a time of having plenty, he is filled with joy and relief. Whether or not Paul will ever get to see the good people of Philippi again, what is important is that they, together, remain in the faith of the Word which Christ has given – that He has died for our sake, and He is risen so that whether I live or whether I die, I do so to the Lord.
