Everyone wants peace of mind.
“A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy the bones”(Pro.14:30)
You Need Three Kinds of Peace
First is spiritual peace. Spiritual peace is peace with God. Romans 5:1 say “Since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” We have to have peace with God before we can have any other kind of peace. There is only one way to obtain, and that is through Jesus Christ (John 14:16)
Second comes emotional peace. First we must have peace with God-spiritual peace. Then we can have the peace of God-emotional peace. Peace an internal sense of well being and order. Colossians 3:15 says, “Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since.. you were called to peace “rule ” here is used only this one time in the Bible, and it means “to umpire.” This verse says we should let the peace of God be umpire in our lives. What does an umpire do? He keeps the peace. God wants to give you an internal umpire who will keep you at peace even when everything around you seem chaotic.
Third you need relational peace, or peace with other people. Romans 12:18 say, “If it is possible live at peace with everyone. Relational peace reduces conflict. How desperately we need spiritual, emotional, and relational peace! But can we really find it.
