Peace That Passes Understanding

“And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Phil 4:7; KJV).

There are many people in the world today who do not have peace of mind. They are mentally troubled (or agitated) and fearful. However, in his gospel, the apostle John quoted Jesus as saying: “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” (John 14:27). Jesus himself gives us his peace, a peace that is far superior than any peace the world has to offer. The Greek word for peace is eirene and it means the secure, assured state of peace and tranquility that Christians have as we rest in all the promises of salvation that Christ won for us.

Jesus will show us how to walk in the peace he has made available to us (Luke 1:79). In the book of Colossians, the apostle Paul exhorts us to: “let the peace of God rule in your hearts” (Col 3:15) and he assures us in his letter to the Ephesians that Jesus: “IS our peace” (Eph 2:14).

If we have Jesus living on the inside of us then we have peace on the inside of us (Gal 2:20). Peace is a fruit of the spirit and as we spend time abiding in the God’s word that fruit will develop and we will experience more of God's peace in our lives. “Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them” (Ps 119:165).
