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:

Ephesians that Jesus: “IS our peace” (Eph 2:14).
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”
