Fruit of the Spirit – Peace

The world’s peace is not from God and therefore goes up and down with our circumstances. The true peace that every man needs is found only in the Holy Spirit applying the cross-work of Jesus Christ to our minds and souls. At the cross forgiveness of sins and reconciliation with God was purchased by Christ. It is when we are saved by Christ from all the powers of sin and evil that peace truly begins. Do you have peace with God? If you do, this will affect your daily life and peace with others. Through the Holy Spirit you can remain calm and trusting in the midst of trials and suffering. This glorifies God and is a truly holy life. Anxiety and worry is sin, but calm trust is righteous. May the Lord help us to grow in this.

Galatians 5:22-23 – But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
