We live in a troubled world. Many have chosen to forget God in order to have the fleeting pleasures of this life. My brethren, there is no spiritual peace in living as the world! The inspired apostle Paul penned, “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God” (Romans 12:2). To the Colossians he wrote, “Let the peace of God rule in your hearts…Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom” (Colossians 3:15-16). To the Philippians, he Wrote “And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Jesus Christ” (Phil 4:7). Yes, even in today’s troubled world, we can have true peace through Jesus. And His peace is eternal!
