“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.” (John 14:27, NIV)
Since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 5:1, NIV)
Imagine the complete absence of conflict
throughout our entire race,
throughout all creation,
between God and each of us.
Imagine perfect harmony,
no death ever again.
Imagine the life and love of God in all their richness
flowing unhindered every moment
This is the peace that Christ brings.
“If we throw aside our selfish anxiety,
then God’s will is enough.
We can rest in it and
be at peace as it unfolds.
Even behind the injustice of human beings
we will see nothing but the
unfailing goodness of our God.”
(paraphrased from Francois Fenelon)
