So let us define the word peace. PEACE (שָׁלוֹם, shalom; εἰρήνη, eirēnē). A pervasive concept in the Bible that most commonly relates to a relationship of love and loyalty with God and one another.
Key passages from the Bible which relate to peace:
I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: For thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety." Psalm 4:8
"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: Because he trusteth in thee." Isaiah 26:3
"Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, Good will toward men." John 14:27
"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." Romans 5:1
"Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ" Philippians 4:7
"And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:7
"I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
Indeed Jesus gives us peace. We know peace in Him and through Him. Let us then not seek the things of the world to give us peace and joy. Let us seek the one who gives us everlasting peace.
