We will all face death and judgment one day. The stress of our souls comes from our awareness. There is life after this one, and we need to prepare for it.
Inner peace is something incredibly hard to achieve, even to explain. You have to train your mind not to be phased by something that would normally bother you. You have to tell yourself nothing is worth losing your sanity over.
What do you do when our world is like a storm crashing in on a sunny day and making us question everything?
True peace comes at a significant cost. The way some people talk about peace seems very degrading to me. They talk about it as if it is a trick of the mind. As if all we need to do is clear the papers off the desk, close our eyes, then poof, stress is gone, and peace arrives. It is such a low view of peace coming at such a low cost. It also depicts too high a view of humanity.
As sinners, we are not naturally at peace with ourselves because we are not at peace with God, our creator. We need someone to pay the cost of our sins and then change us from the inside. Only then can we have true peace. Someone did pay the price for us.
There are two verses in the book of Ephesians 2:13-14, But now in Christ Jesus, you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For he himself is our peace. We can find “Peace of Mind” when we organize our work life and manage our stress. Yet, these things cannot achieve our highest need, peace of our soul.
With the world flipped upside down and red flags everywhere, I believe God himself is reminding us that Jesus Christ came to the earth to give those who believe in him as Lord and Savior, an eternal peace of the soul. Jesus Christ died so that we could have salvation.
My question, are we paying attention?
