Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27 NIV
I think the best gift in this world is peace. I remember watching the Miss America beauty pageant. Many of the contestants said they wanted world peace. Many years have gone by since then and we still don’t have world peace. The peace that Jesus promises is not the same. The peace He offers us is to be at peace when the storm rages around us. The world can’t give us that kind of peace. We need the peace that passeth all understanding that only Christ can give us.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7 NIV
