“Promised Peace”

The Bible is full of reminders of the peace that Jesus Christ has brought to us. Two of our favorites are John 14:26 and Phil. 4:6. Jesus said, “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.” Through the apostle Paul, the Lord reminds us; “Do not be anxious about anything. But in everything, with prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, make your request be known to God and The peace of God which passes understanding will keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” Phil. 4:6. I firmly believe that ALL of these and much more, are manifestations of the peace that Jesus has brought and we praise Him for that. The peace that Jesus brings into our hearts is also our firm assurance that should we go anytime, Jesus will meet and welcome US into His heavenly home.
