Peace Be With You


Our lord and Our Friend often said in scripture, ‘Peace be to you’, which is a common greeting in Hebrew.

The Word ‘peace’ is the Hebrew word ‘shalom’, and it demotes well being, wholeness, completeness and welfare. It covers our relationship with God, with others, with ourselves and with the world.

When we read Scripture verses with the word “peace’ in, knowing and understanding the meaning of the word, the scripture can really speak to us. Here are a few verses to reflect on:

Colossians 3 verse 15: “And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body, and be thankful”.

Isaiah 26 verse 3: “You will keep in perfect peace the mind that is dependent on You”.

Isaiah 52 verses 7:  “How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of the herald, who proclaims peace, who brings news of good things, who proclaims salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns!”

Romans 5 verse1: “Therefore, since we have been declared righteous by faith, we  have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ”.

Philippians 4 verse 7: “And The Peace of God, which surpasses every thought, will guard your heart and your minds in Christ Jesus”.

Let the understanding of the word “Peace’, {it is not a peace the world can understand or give}, flood our very beings, because in reading John 14 verse 27 we will see why.

“Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives, Your heart must not be troubled or fearful”.

My {Our Lord and Our Friend’s} peace He leaves with us, he has left us with ‘shalom’ well being, wholeness, and completeness. Actually He never leaves us, that is what peace we have IN HIM.

Romans 5 verse 1; Peace with God, ‘Relationship’ with God, in relationship with God, we have better relationship with others with our selves, and with the world.

Much more can be said but “Peace Be With You”.

God Bless.
