Peace that the World Cannot Give by Robert Ricciardelli
Christ is a peacemaker. His peace doesn't mean only absence of war. It is not simply harmony and an all-is-calm atmosphere. His peace brings the fullness of well-being, abundantly given by God. Jesus gives us a gift of peace that the world cannot give. Shalom - peace is the well-being of body, soul, and spirit, individually and communally. It can exist in the midst of unresolved problems and increasing human conflicts. This is peace we can receive and peace we can freely give in Him.
