What can compare to peace in Christ?
The peace of this world is based on external things, it is temporary and deceitful.(Jer.6:13-14). The peace of the world, provided by material possessions, is costly to the soul. It adds no spiritual value. On the other hand, inward peace of conscience, peace of mind is what we should desire. It is peace from knowing that our sins have been pardoned and that we are reconciled to Christ. It is lasting secure peace, based upon the promises within God’s Word. It is peace, purchased with the precious blood of the Lamb. The blood never loses its power. It sustains and strengthens the mind, body and soul through every trial.
Never be troubled
Before Jesus departed He encouraged His disciples. They would go through adverse situations, stand before the authorities, face many dangers, but they were not to be troubled. Neither were they to be afraid. In the midst of it all, they would have peace. You will also have peace if you see whatever troubles you have through the eyes of Christ. He is ever ready to forgive. He is medicine to the troubled heart.
Christ is a giver of peace, though the world rejects it. What Christ gives is established forever, it is eternal. He is ever ready to give abundantly above all that we can ask or think. Psalm 81: 10 says,
“Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.”
Open your mouth wide this morning so that God will fill it with His goodness. May the peace of God which surpasses all understanding guard your heart and mind (Philippians 4:7) Amen
