THREE TYPES OF PEACE
A summary based on notes provided by United Christian Broadcasters (UCB), Word for Today, 28th July 2016.
- Peace with God
- Peace with yourself
- Peace with others
Peace with God
Key verse: Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 5: 1, NIV)
Eternal peace and assurance brings about the second type of peace: peace with oneself…
Peace with yourself
Key verse: Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts (Colossians 3: 15, NIV)
Once we have peace in our own hearts, we are better able to relate peacefully to others…
Peace with others
Key verse: As far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone (Romans 12: 18, NIV)
Peace that reaches out to others provides them and you with a secure foundation for developing harmonious relationships.
Jesus often spoke of the peace that only He can offer: peace in the midst of storm and uncertainty… The peace that is beyond human understanding or rational explanation.
