Know Jesus — Know Peace

You may have seen on a bumper sticker or on a church sign this slogan: “No Jesus — No Peace; Know Jesus — Know Peace.” Is that really true? Can we not have any peace without Jesus?

The answer depends on what is meant by peace. The world would say that peace is the absence of conflict or stress in our lives. We all know that we go through periods when everything seems to be going smoothly in our lives. We would say that we are enjoying peace. But we also know that our situation can change without any warning. Our peace is gone because of things outside of our control. If our peace can be taken away at any moment, are we really enjoying peace?

The peace that Jesus gives us is not subject to our changing circumstances. We can experience Jesus’ peace no matter what we are going through. Jesus’ peace is the assurance we have that God loves us and knows what is best for us and is sovereignly working everything in our lives for our good (Ro. 8:28). Jesus’ peace is beyond the comprehension of people who do not know Him (Phil. 4:7).

There truly is NO PEACE for those who have NO JESUS in their lives. Only those who KNOW JESUS will KNOW PEACE!
