What is (true) Peace?

Peace is what the world searches for, but will never find it.  There are things that are given and taken as peace that are counterfeit and we who are of the Household of God in Christ our Lord should pursue for what is true and lasting and what will sustain us.  Peace never comes in a bottle, a prescription or escape.

Let us understand that peace is not only a feeling, it is the very person of Jesus Christ!  Have a look at verses in the bible that describe peace.  Let your heart drink in and receive His Peace for us – today.

Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Is 9:6
