His Peace

Peace should be part of our character because God has promised us His peace, because He has commanded us to let peace rule in our lives and relationships, and because peace is a fruit of the Spirit and therefore an evidence of His working in our lives.

[Jerry Bridges]

Isaiah 26:3 … Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

Numbers 6:26 … The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.

Philippians 4:7 … And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Galatians 5:22 … But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

Romans 5:1 …Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:

Ephesians 4:3 … Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

John 14:27 … Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

2 Corinthians 13:11 … Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you. ♥
