5 Things the Bible Says About Peace

God loves you and wants you to experience peace and eternal life.

In Billy Graham’s book, Peace with God, he shares about finding peace as described by the Bible.

“The way of peace have they not known.” the apostle Paul says concerning the human race (Romans 3:17). As we look around, we find that there is little personal, domestic, social, economic or political peace anywhere. Why? Because we all have the seeds of suspicion and violence, of hatred and destruction within us.

Jesus said, “Blessed are the peacemakers” (Matthew 5:9). We are to try for peace.

Peace can be experienced only when we have received divine pardon – when we have been reconciled to God and when we have the harmony within, without fellow man and especially with God. But through the blood of the cross, Christ has made peace with God for us and is Himself our peace. If by faith we accept Him, we are justified by God and can realize the inner serenity that can come to man through no other means. When Christ enters our hearts, we are freed of that haunting sense of sin. Cleansed of all feeling if contamination and unfitness, we can lift up our heads secure in the knowledge that we can look with confidence into the face of our fellow men. When people’s lives please the Lord, even their enemies are at peace with them.” (Proverbs 16:7) Even more important, we know that we can stand before God in the hour of our death with this same feeling if peace and security.

Here are 5 things the Bible says about PEACE:

“Now may the Lord of peace himself give you his peace at all times and in every situation.The Lord be with you all.”

2 Thessalonians 3:16 (NLT) 

“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.”

Colossians 3:15 (NLT) 

“God blesses those who work for peace,
for they will be called the children of God.”

Matthew 5:9 (NLT)

“You will keep in perfect peace
all who trust in you,
all whose thoughts are fixed on you!”

Isaiah 26:3 (NLT)

“In peace I will lie down and sleep,
    for you alone, O Lord, will keep me safe.”

Psalm 4:8 (NLT)
