A PRECIOUS GIFT TO US
FOR EVERYDAY LIFE.
(Colossians 3:15 AMPC) says,
And let the peace (soul harmony which
comes) from Christ rule (act as umpire continually) in your hearts (deciding
and settling with finality all questions
that arise in our minds, in that peaceful
state) to which as [members of Christ’s]
one body we were also called [to live].
And be thankful (appreciative),
[giving praise to God always].
We all experience situations in our
lives where we can lose our peace
if we do not let the peace of God
continue to rule in our hearts.
The Peace of God is God’s precious
gift to us that is essential for everyday
life in our lives as believers in Christ.
The Peace of God unlike the world’s
peace is not short lived and does
not change with circumstances.
The Peace of God does not necessarily
mean the absence of trouble but the
presence of God in the midst of trouble
As we embrace each new day,
may the peace of God rule in our
hearts in every situation we face
like an umpire that tells us what
is “safe” or what is “not safe”
and settling with finality all the
questions that arise in our minds.
May the peace of God,
which surpasses all understanding,
guard our hearts and our minds in
Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:7.
