SECURE SERENITYWe live in a time of chaos and confusion. This is a time when people desire lasting peace.
Our God is well aware of our external and internal condition. He sent His Son as the “Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6b). Yes, Christ extends to us His “peace”—
““Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to
you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and
do not be afraid.”” (John 14:27)
““I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace.
In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have come to
overcome the world.”” (John 16:33)
The apostle Paul refers to this Christ-centered peace as “transcendent”—
“And the peace of God that transcends all understanding will
guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:7)
Christ offers what the world can not provide—true peace. Christ extends His arms to us to enjoy His secure serenity.
