“In Me You May Have Peace”

By Curt Darling

Many efforts of mankind have an aim of bringing a lasting peace to this earth. Yet, in spite of all these efforts, there is still no true satisfaction or peace in the hearts of men. Nowhere in the universe can real and lasting peace be found but in God. He alone is the Author of such peace.

We may pretend – as was the case many years ago with the people who said, “Peace, peace! When there is no peace” (Jer. 6:14 nkjv). It was sin that destroyed peace and made us the enemies of God. It is sin also that makes men fight and kill each other, and commit all sorts of wrong deeds. So this vital question of sin must be settled before we can have real peace with God and peace among ourselves. We can pretend we are happy, but remember that “‘there is no peace,’ says my God, ‘for the wicked’” (Isa. 57:21).

You may have experienced a little temporary peace and happiness now and then, but only Christ, who is called in the Bible the “Prince of Peace” (9:6), can bring true peace within your own heart. He died on the cross for your sin. The prophet Isaiah said long ago, “Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; … He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed” (53:4-5).

You may have this peace by acknowledging your true condition as a sinner and accepting Christ as your Savior. It is not through any effort of man that peace is acquired. Rather, believe what God is saying to you in His Word, the Bible. Only then will you receive everlasting life, happiness and real peace. Jesus said, “These things have I spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace” (Jn. 16:33). We can tell you more.
