Everyone, at some point in their life, has found peace in finite things. Admit it, we’ve all done it. We have found our peace and happiness in our jobs, our lifestyle, our everyday routine. But for many of us, our sources of peace have been stripped away. All the things we find solace and happiness have gone away. But there is still peace left to be discovered. Jesus is the only One who can offer us everlasting peace that does not shift with the tides but remains steady through everything. There is no peace apart from Jesus. So when all sense of security is taken away, Jesus’ peace remains. Steadfast and ready to find you." ...

The church is not meant to, in times of crisis, shrink back in fear. Fear is not our motivator - peace is our motivator. Peace is the thing that binds us together in unity. We were called to not only experience peace for ourselves but to be the peacemakers in a world overcome with anxiety and fear. Today, take a moment to spread peace to someone who is experiencing anxiety or fear. Maybe it’s your neighbor, your family, or even someone in your church. Encourage them in the peace of God and pray that this peace can rule in their heart ...

Contrary to popular belief, Jesus didn’t come to leave us with fear. He didn’t leave us with condemnation or retribution. Jesus left us with peace. But He didn’t just leave us with any peace, He left us with HIS peace. Eternal peace. Heavenly peace. This peace is nothing like the “peace” the world gives, which is really just peace with a false promise. Not only did Jesus give us peace, but He also instructed us to not let our hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
How? How do we, in the overwhelming fear, possibly experience peace and not be afraid? We experience peace through following the Prince of Peace. The One who gives us peace freely, and not the peace that the world promises, but peace rooted in who Jesus is.
