Galatians 5:22-23 (NIV)
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. Against such things, there is no law.
The Fruit of Peace
The third Fruit of the Spirit is peace, or “the tranquility of soul, a sense of well-being, rest, or harmony.” Without this wonderful and life-changing quality at work in our heart, there is discord, torment, adversity, and other unnecessary trials. Peace is real, and the ability to live at peace with those around is possible, but only with the Spirit’s help. “The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.” (Exodus 14:14 KJV)
If we choose to dwell on the lasting peace the Spirit gives us. God’s heavenly peace encompasses every aspect of our lives. With His peace our heart is calm and we do not fear.
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give 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, NIV
Let us choose PEACE today!
