“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.”
Colossians 3:15 NIV
In the world peace is defined as the absence of conflict. The biblical definition of peace is more expansive and is speaking about having completeness or wholeness. It is referred to as the taking of something that is broken and making it complete once again. Jesus gives us peace by taking our broken relationship with God because of sin and restores it to completeness by His sacrifice on the Cross. You can learn about this and other bible studies on a web site I hghily recommend…it is called the BibleProject
This is a great resource to spend time studying and learning about the bible through video. May the peace of God be with you and flow through you each day. Amen.
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”
John 14:27 NIV
