The biblical idea of peace is more than the absence of conflict. Hebrew-speaking people have a word for it… SHALOM! This word covers a wide range including the idea of totality, completeness, success, fulfillment, wholeness, harmony, tranquility, security and well-being of soul. Who wouldn’t want all that? The bad news is that most people don’t experience that most of the time. The Good News is that it is available in Jesus. In fact, it is the Fruit of the Spirit and already is the possession gifted to every child of God. Yet, so many of us so much of the time don’t access what is our heritage as children of God. Want more peace in your life? Then go to the source. God is the exclusive source and it can be experienced in all circumstances. Don’t let the downside dominate!
