Where peace is found

Peace: Nations strive for it. Individuals yearn to feel it in their daily lives. Sometimes it appears fragile, other times elusive. Yet there is a foundation for peace stronger and more dependable than any societal system ever devised—it originates in God alone and is included in every element of our lives.

Perhaps nowhere is this spiritual basis of peace revealed more clearly than in the life of Christ Jesus. His thoughtful teachings and powerful healing career underscore the assurance he left his followers: “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” (John 14:27). At first glance, Jesus’ encouraging words may appear to be simply a promise of serenity or tranquility in a troubled world, but the Bible shows us so much more.
