People spend their whole lives working for peace. Unfortunately true peace is not something that can be achieved, it can only be received . True peace can only come from God. John 14:27 This peace doesnt affect our surroundings, it affects our inner souls. Paul says it will go deep into our hearts and minds. It is only something that can be received by God. As a follower of Jesus, we should be the ones looked to when others need peace. Not because our surroundings are peacefull but because our hearts and mind are at peace with God through the death of Christ on the cross.
