If we do not receive the peace that God gives, we cannot be holy to him and before him. Holiness is complete satisfaction in God. Without his peace, we cannot be satisfied and thus begin the futile search to replace him. “I pray that God, who gives peace, will make you completely holy” 1Thes 5.23 CEB.
Peace reigns in the heart when the knowledge of God puts the mind at rest and when the concerns of the moment are laid at his feet. #peace
The world is full of drama or, to be more precise, emotional upheaval, heated conflict, and selfish tirades. Christians need not add to it, there is already plenty of it. Their task is to offer a solution for it. That solution is Christ; his character, peace.
The simple person is not one whose struggles have ceased, but whose peace of soul reigns in their midst.
