Without Christ, one has no peace.
With Christ, one gets to know peace.
Points to ponder:
Jesus said, that the peace he gives is a peace unlike what the world gives (John 14:27) and so let our hearts not be troubled or afraid. He can give us this peace because he is the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6). Not only is he the Prince of Peace, but he is in the order of Melchizedek. Besides, meaning, King of righteousness (or justice), Melchizedek also means King of Salem (or the King of Peace). Not only is Jesus the Prince of Peace and the King of Peace (Genesis 14:18, Hebrews 7:2), but He is also the God of Peace (Philippians 4:9). Do you know Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, for in knowing Him, you will know peace; real peace, unlike what the world gives and the kind that the world cannot take away.
Philippians 4:7-9 (KJV)
7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.
