Peace. We all want it. Peace between races, and people, and nations. It’s been sought after for generations. Yet generation after generation, we see that wars and conflicts persist. We go through inner turmoil, and peace almost seems like an unreachable dream.
But Jesus says something strange in the gospels, He promises the disciples peace in the middle of a time of conflict in Israel. Jesus speaks of a different kind of peace; He is talking about a peace that comes from knowing that God is in control. Peace that doesn’t come from the world, but directly from Him.
