Let Peace Rule!

 

Peace rules! And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful” (Colossians 3:15 NKJV). We live in times of turmoil. Everyone is protesting about something. No one likes things as they are. The world is constantly on the lookout for terrorists and crime activity is rampant. Peace seems far away. However, inside we can have the peace of Jesus ruling.

“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” (John 14:27 NKJV). Don’t let all these things trouble your heart. Let peace rule. The original Greek meant a state of peaceful being. The Old Testament had the idea of well-being and health. It also has the idea of a state of rest. Shalom means nothing missing and nothing broken. That is what Jesus brings to the equation. It’s rest. “Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28 NKJV).

Rest in the peace of Jesus. Let it rule your heart so the chaos in the world will not trouble you.
