THE PEACE OF JESUS CHRIST IN LIFE!
These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the World you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world (John 16:33).
Peace is something very special and unique to mankind in life. Everyone including all nations of the earth is seeking for peace but to no avail in life. The Bible says in the opening text that these things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the World you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that the peace of God is everlasting and devoid of sorrow in life. The peace of God can only be gotten through Christ Jesus and no where else in life. God’s eternal peace can never be bought in life forever.
There is a great difference between the peace of Jesus Christ and the one the world can offer in life. That is why Jesus said in John 14:27, “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” Therefore, the peace of God is indeed given by Jesus Christ to all Christians in order for them to live a life of boldness. The peace the world can offer is temporary, full of illusions and deceits. But the one Jesus Christ offers is real, tested and eternal in life forever.
The peace of Jesus Christ transcends man’s understanding and knowledge in life. It is the peace the world can never offer because it does not have it in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in Philippians 4:7, And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. In fact, the peace of God is of course guidance to the heart and mind of a Christian through Christ Jesus in life. Take note of the fact that the peace of God cannot be bought with money nor material things, and even pleasures of life can never produce it for anyone in life forever.
Daily Tip: Everyone should earnestly desire the peace of Jesus Christ which is real, tested and eternal in life forever. Shalom!
