Let Peace Be Heard

Can peace be heard?

Where there is a lot of clamor, people cry out “Let there be peace.” “Or I can’t hear myself think.” Peace can be heard.

Where there is stress, confusion, unrest, “People cry out- Let there be peace!” Peace may be experienced in our minds. We can hear it.

Where there is interference, calamity or war. People cry out. “Let us be free of disruption, painful events, or loss from fighting. “Peace can be a physical sensation.

Oxford dictionary describes peace as, “the state of being calm or quiet”. However, peace in the Bible is quite different. Peace can be more than just the absence of conflict, or a state of rest. “It also means completeness or wholeness, and it points to the presence of something else. Having Shalom” (Hebrew)(GWTFTS) This was sometimes translated into “Well being, may you be well.” Again, speaks of wholeness, health.

Jesus is our peace with God. (Romans 5:1)

Due to our sin we were enemies of God and were separated from Him. (Ephesians 2:13)

But Jesus restored our relationship when He took our sins and died our death on the cross. (Ephesians 2:14)

He provided a path for reconciliation with God, and now we are joined to God. (Romans 5:10). We also have fellowship with Him (1John 1:9) and with one another (Colossians 1:19-20).

He also gives us peace with ourselves, (2 Corinthians 5:17)

Jesus makes us whole and He is our peace, I believe peace is many more things than what has been discussed here. Through Jesus peace is always heard.
