Colossians 3- Peace of God

And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him. Colossians 3:15-17

Peace is a very valuable thing, it’s something that can’t be purchased or prescribed, even though many look for peace in various different ways. How can we truly find inner peace? And why can’t we ever seem to obtain peace? The only way to obtain the Peace of God is through Jesus Christ, period. Jesus will calm the storm in our hearts and minds, because Christ is in complete control of all things

I find it interesting if you look at all the different English translations, some will say “the Peace of God” while others will say “the peace of Christ” , Christ and God are used interchangeably here, and it doesn’t come as a surprise. Jesus Christ is God in the flesh (John 1:14, Isaiah 9:6), the Son of God part of the Trinity (Matthew 28:19) Jesus Christ is your Lord and God (John 20:28) If Christ is not your Lord and God, then this is probably where your issues begin, to deny the true deity of Christ, is to deny Gods redemptive power

The reason you can’t obtain peace outside of Christ is because of our sins. Most people believe they are a “good person” and don’t want to acknowledge their sin, however sin makes us enemies of God (Romans 5:10) You will never inherit peace because you are at war with your Creator, and whether you acknowledge God or not, your soul longs to be reconciled back to our Heavenly Father

Jesus Christ is the only way to be reconciled back to God from your sins (John 14:6, Acts 4:12) There is no other way to be forgiven for your sins, there is no other way to be reconciled back to God the Father, there is no other way except through Christ alone. No other religion or philosophy can provide atonement for your sins. How do we know we are sinners? By the Law of God, hence the Ten Commandments. The moral law of God reveals to us our sinful nature and need for a Savior, Jesus Christ

Paul says “Let the word of Christ dwell in you” hear the gospel of Jesus Christ and let it dwell in you, allow the Holy Spirit to open your heart to plant the seeds of God’s words and promises. Meditate on the Word of God (The Bible) daily and allow it to dwell in you, because the Word of God is alive and active, sharper than a two edge sword (Hebrews 4:12)

If you want peace, seek Jesus Christ, allow the Peace of God to rule in your hearts by the Holy Spirit, Amen!
