In the third week of our study, I am writing to discuss a brief summary of PEACE, which is a part of the 9 areas of the Fruit of the Spirit 9-Week Study. Meanwhile, have you read these articles about LOVE and JOY in the past couple of weeks? If not, you can click to read these articles: LOVE and JOY. So let’s focus on the fruit of the holy spirit: PEACE.
The Fruit of the Spirit: PEACE!
Some Christians are struggling with finding peace in their spirits. Our Lord encourages us to give up some serious situations and give them to Him on the account of what we need to do is to rest and have peace for our spirits. We don’t need to worry, stress, and panic; our holy spirits remind us to rest and seek peace in our hearts. In the Bible, “And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful.” (Colossians 3:15, NLT). Our precious Lord wants you to have a continuous life to the very fullest; to live a beautiful eternal life with peace!
Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you. ~ 1 Peter 5:7
This verse tells us to give up our concerns to our Lord because He is willing to take our issues and He cares about us. Some Christians are mostly worried about a lot of things that are unfinished, our Lord takes care of our things for sure. He does not want us to get in His way, He advises us to stay patient and rest.
Turn away from evil and do good.
Search for peace, and work to maintain it. ~ Psalm 34:14
This verse explains that we should turn away from doing evil things and focus on finding peace. Some Christians try to stay away from doing evil things such as arguing, fighting physically, or speaking violently. They sometimes say that they have bad habits, even though they feel empty or have lost their minds. Our holy spirits speak wisely to us to seek peace and solve some issues calmly.
Now may the Lord of peace himself give you his peace at all times and in every situation. The Lord be with you all. ~ 2 Thessalonians 3:16
This verse shows that we should know that the Lord is himself Peace because He gives us His peace all the time, even though He is always with us.
I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid. ~ John 14:27
Lastly, this verse interprets that only our Lord can give us peace; however, our hearts should not become more troubled. And, we should not be afraid of anything we face in the world. Our Lord never leaves us. In the Bible, “May the Lord our God be with us as he was with our ancestors; may he never leave us or abandon us.” (1 Kings 8:57, NLT).

Since we learn about peace as a Fruit of the Spirit, what we need to do is to continue our peace in our spirits by reading our Bibles, praying, speaking with our Lord, and meditating our mind and searching our heart through the Holy Spirit.
Next week, I will talk a brief summary of Patience, that is part of the Fruit of the Spirit. I’m praying that you all would come here to learn some about this.
