Read Romans 5:1 through 8:39
There is little peace in this world. Wars are constantly being fought somewhere on the planet. Then there is the turmoil in people’s hearts—anger, hatred, worry, anxiety. Yet there is a way to live in perfect peace.
Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 5:1).
Sin separates us from God’s peace. When people accept Jesus, they are justified, free from sin and its power.
However, Christians live in the world and daily rub shoulders with situations that threaten their peace. On these occasions, peace must be pursued. God’s people should avoid controversy, speak kindly, and treat others as they’d like to be treated.
Christians do not stand alone in their pursuit of peace. God has provided a helper. The Holy Spirit lives in every believer’s heart and will help them have peace.
If you feel your supply of peace slipping away, read the Bible, and ask God for a fresh supply. He has plenty of peace to share with you.
Prayer Suggestion: God, please bless me with heavenly peace. Amen.
