“For He himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation.”
It ought to be evident that we cannot find peace in science; scientists predict nothing but gloom if global war should occur. There is no peace in technology, for our greatest gadgets might fail to provide us any protection. There is no peace in new age philosophies, or humanistic ideology.
There is one and only one who can give us peace and that is Christ.
He is the Prince of Peace. He holds the world in His hands, and He has unlimited power. In John 14:27, when Jesus was about to leave this earth and return to His Father, He said to His disciples: “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.”
We can find peace in our relationship with Him, if we know Him by faith. Our souls are always in unrest until they rest in Jesus. He is our peace, He can give us calm in the midst of the storms of our life that no other can. Colossians 1:20 “And having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself,” and Romans 5:1”Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
We can have peace through his words, for in his word we find hope and assurance. John 16:33 “These things have I spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” Everything may be caving in around us, gloom and despair may fill the airwaves, but in Him, we have peace.
We can have peace and comfort through His Holy Spirit. Acts 9:31reads, “Then had the churches rest throughout all Judea and Galilee and Samaria, and were edified; and walking in the fear of the Lord, and in the comfort of the Holy Ghost, were multiplied.”
Yes, peace seems to have vacated our world, but with Christ in our hearts, we can have peace with God, a peace that passes all understanding (Philippians 4:7). His peace does not come and go, it settles deep within our hearts and souls. How desperately our world today needs to look to Him and in Him find peace.
