“I am leaving you with a gift – peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid “. – John 14:27 (NLT)
In a world that is so chaotic and conflicted, it seems naively idealistic to talk about peace. But peace is one of the gifts that God offers us through Jesus Christ. It is an eternal truth that all who love and serve God will experience His peace in their personal lives.
For those who have God’s peace, it does not mean that they will escape the problems and sorrows of life, it means that they possess something more precious than the spirit of the times in which we live.
Christ’s peace is not a passive quality that shuts our eyes to the harsh reality, but creates a positive approach to life, based on the belief in the trustworthiness of God.
Praise the Lord Jesus, You came to bring peace. Thank You for the peace of this glorious truth ruling in my own heart. Amen.
