“Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Your heart must not be troubled or fearful.” (John 14:27)
Are you happy with your everyday life? Or are you living a life filled with the illusion of peace and happiness? The world bases its peace on its resources, while God’s peace depends on relationships. To be right with God means to enjoy the peace of God. The world depends on personal ability, but the Christian depends on spiritual adequacy in Christ. In the world, peace is something you hope for or work for; but to the Christian, peace is God’s wonderful gift, received by faith. Unsaved people enjoy peace when there is an absence of trouble; Christians enjoy peace in spite of trials because of the presence of God, the Holy Spirit. The Spirit’s presence makes it possible for us to choose not to be troubled or fearful. He is the unbreakable link of our living relationship with the Lord.
Peace, by the Spirit, is offered freely through Christ Jesus. Your debt has already been paid, this is a free gift that is yours if you ask. So ask and share!
