Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts… Colossians 3:15 NIV
There is only one source for true peace. It is our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Until we acknowledge Him in our hearts, we will never find rest.
Come to the Source of Peace
There are a ton of things to chase after in this world. Some of them even seem good. Things like justice, success, equality and even service to others. However, there is only one thing that can quiet your soul. It is a relationship with Jesus. It is bowing your head and heart before Him.
Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28 NLT
Whatever your burden, Jesus is ready to receive it from you. He will give you rest. He can give you a peace that passes understanding. Even as the storms of life rage all around you, Jesus will create in you a calmness that is unexplainable.
Instead of focusing on the things of this world, we need to get our minds centered on Jesus and Him alone. Look at what we are told:
You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. Isaiah 26:3 ESV
Perfect peace is available to us. We just need to train our thoughts on the One who is the source of all peace.
Receive the Peace of Jesus
I am leaving you with a gift — peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid. John 14:27 NLT
The world cannot give you peace. There’s nothing here that offers that. The source of peace is Jesus. It is a gift that He gives freely to anyone that is willing to acknowledge Him as their Lord and Savior. Receive His peace today!
