OUR HEARTS ARE CALLED TO BE AT PEACE
God calls us as the body of Christ, to be at peace.
“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace” (Colossians 3 v 15).
In fact God tells us not only to seek peace but to actively pursue it.
“Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it. The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and His ears are attentive to their cry” (Psalm 34 v 14 & 15).
Yet Jesus also tells us in the Gospels that He did not come to the earth to bring peace, but a sword.
