Tim Keller defines peace this way: a confidence and rest in the wisdom and control of God, cure rather than in your own. It replaces anxiety and worry. The fake version of peace is indifference, apathy, not caring about something.


The word in our scriptures comes from the Hebrew term of “shalom” which is a state of well-being, wholeness, harmony that infuses all of one’s relationships. A New Testament scholar describes it as “That calm of mind which is not ruffled by adversity, overclouded by sin or a remorseful conscience, or disturbed by the fear and the approach of death.”


Definitions, root language and descriptions are nice but the issue is do I have “peace”? Here is a good starting point to evaluate and build peace into our lives. God’s Word. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. Col. 3:15 God’s People God’s Spirit
