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 God indeed wants him to desire sincerely the peace of Jesus Christ which is above all things in life. The peace of God can only be gotten through Christ Jesus and nowhere else in life. Hence, the peace of God absolutely transcends all human understanding 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 Christ said in John 14:27 thus, “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 world and its systems can never offer the peace of Jesus Christ which is shalom because it does not have it at all to offer it in life. The peace the world can offer is temporary, full of illusions and deceits in life. But the one Jesus Christ offers is real, tested and eternal in life. There is absolutely nothing in life that can offer the peace that God gave to mankind through Jesus Christ 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 let alone offer 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 whoever has the peace of Jesus Christ, experiences God’s perfect guidance both here and hereafter in life. Take note of the fact that the peace of God cannot be bought with money, material things and pleasures of life. Therefore, the peace of God is absolutely above all things in life forever.
Daily Tip: Everyone should earnestly desire the peace of Jesus Christ which is real, tested and eternal in life forever. Shalom!
