“Mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you.”
Peace is the ability to sit down on the inside. This peace comes from God and is not engendered by human effort. The Greek word for “peace” means to join together what has been separated. It is the result of having been separated from and then receiving God’s grace. God puts the shattered soul together with peace after it’s been ravished by sin.
This is not peace with God but the peace of God, a tranquility from God. God assuages the evil results of sin. Peace is necessary under theological conflict.
We need peace.
We all have peace with God, but we also need the peace of God. We need peace:
You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You. Is 26:3
Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. Jn 14:27
Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Ro 15:13
All of us have a sense of peace when things are going right, but things seldom go right. God gives His peace in the midst of problems. Without God’s peace we would live in panic palace.
