Peace Be With You

Colossians 3:15
And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful.

The peace that comes from Christ.  What is that?

I believe it is far more than conflict resolution. This kind of peace gives rest to your soul.  It alleviates your need for acceptance because you know you are loved by a God who never leaves you.  Knowing God has a plan for your life settles your heart's restless yearning for purpose and meaning.  Christ's peace is a feeling of being right with God, completely forgiven, released from guilt or shame.

Let this peace rule in your hearts and guide your steps.  And always be thankful that you belong to a loving God who would do anything to give you His peace.
