What do you think about peace ? “ My friend asked
As we ate lunch together , “ PEACE “ I said puzzled
I’m not sure - why do you ask He answered . Well
As you jiggled your foot during the church service
I wondered if your agitated by about something .
Have you considered the peace God give you
And those who love him . That day some years
Ago I was hurt by my friend question, but it started
Me on a journey , I been exploring the Bible to see
How God’s people embraced the gift of well - being
Of peace , even in the midst of hardship , as I read
Paul’s letter to th Colossians , I chewed over the apostles
Command to let the peace of Christ rule in their hearts .
Paul was writing to a church he never visited but heard of
From his friend . He was concerned as they encountered
False teaching they were losing the peace of Christ , But
Instead admonished them , Paul,encouraging them to trust
Jesus who would give them assurance and hope , We all will
Encounter times when we can choose to embrace or refuse the
The rule of Christ peace in our hearts . As we turn to him asking
Asking Jesus to dwell in us , He will gently release us from anxiety
And cares that weigh us down , as we seek his peace . We trust
That he will meet us with his love .
Let the peace of Christ
Rule in your heart , since
Members of one body you
We’re called to peace .
