The Promise Of Peace



Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. —2 Peter 1:2



At Christmastime we love to hear the angelic message of peace on earth. But the message that's repeated in songs and sermons needs to be heard and heeded every day of the year. We continually hear reports of tragedies around the globe. And we may be troubled by personal problems and crises. We long for and pray for peace.

The Bible provides an answer to that plea for peace. To start with, the apostle Paul assured us in Romans 5:1 that it is possible to have peace with God. Yes, we disobedient and sinful creatures can enter into a state of reconciliation with God through faith in His Son Jesus (v.11).

We can enjoy emotional peace as we cast our cares on the Savior (Philippians 4:6-7; 1 Peter 5:7). There is also the possibility of interpersonal peace. In Romans 12:18, Paul urged believers, "As much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men." Peace with others can become a reality. Best of all, we can anticipate global peace when our Savior, the Prince of Peace, returns.

By our prayers and by our example, let us be peacemakers who help to fulfill the angelic message: "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!" (Luke 2:14). —Vernon Grounds


Peace, perfect peace, in this dark world of sin?
The blood of Jesus whispers peace within;
Peace, perfect peace, our future all unknown?
Jesus, we know, and He is on the throne. —Bickersteth

Only the Prince of Peace can bring lasting peace.

Yes. Amen

O the peace my Savour gives, Peace I never knew before, And my way has brighter grown, Since I learned to trust Him more

Peace Peace Wonderful Peace, Coming down from the Father above. Sweep over my spirit forever I pray, In fathomless billows of Love.
