Let the Peace of Christ Rule in Your Hearts

O how easy it is for this world’s trouble to ensnare us. We would be as a ship without a rudder, drifting from place to place at sea. Without hope, anxiety reigns. Yet with Jesus, we have true peace, brimful and running over.

“And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.”

(Colossians 3:14-15)

Place your trust in God, and He will give you rest from this world’s trouble. No longer will we need to chase after the wind of activity that surrounds our lives. He will fill us with hope, which will settle our minds and our hearts. He will give us lasting peace.

We can do all things through Jesus. He gave Himself up so that we might live. What life is it if we seek to honor Him by striving after that which dishonors Him? True repentance is turning from sin and doing what He taught. Only then will we have a quieted mind.

Seek God’s will and look to Him for relief. He will not fail us. His trouble weighs less than what the world holds. Give ear to His voice and lift your eyes to the Lord, for He is good. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts.

  1. Many will not find peace for they look for it in all the world offers and their circumstances. For sure, peace can only be found in Jesus Christ. May we all set our minds on Him.

  2. He alone who is our life will keep our hearts and minds in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Him. This writing was such a Blessing Jack! Gods Grace and Love over you Always.

  3. Thank you Jack for this beautiful reminder of what happens when we put our trust in the Lord. Your sentence speaks volumes, “He will fill us with hope, which will settle our minds and our hearts” A great way to greet Monday morning.
