Peace

Peace

Everybody loves " Peace" ( almost?). What does  this mean? Absence of war, conflict. Many make this sign as greeting. In many Chinese Christian communities, the usual greeting is "Peace",  which is "平安"。

  In the Bible,‘ peac e’ in English comes from the Hebrew word 'shalom'. 'Shalom' means many things not just no war or battles. From my study Bible, 'shalom' means, "Completeness, wholeness, peace, health, prosperity, perfectness, harmony; the absence of conflict and discord."  So in short, it can mean wholeness, total well-being.(一切美好, 安宁, 完美。。。身体,心灵,情况) 

  Jesus said, " My peace I leave with you, mypeace I give you, I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your heart be troubled and do not be afraid." John 14:27

And Jesus also said, " I have told you these things. so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart, I have overcome the world." John 16:33.

So peace comes from knowing Jesus. Restoration of the whole person ( body, soul and spirit) can come fully by in faith in  Messiah Jesus.

約 翰 福 音 14:27

  27 我 留 下 平 安 給 你 們 ; 我 將 我 的 平 安 賜 給 你 們 。 我 所 賜 的 , 不 像 世 人 所 賜 的 。 你 們 心 裡 不 要 憂 愁 , 也 不 要 膽 怯 。

約 翰 福 音 16:33

  33 我 將 這 些 事 告 訴 你 們 , 是 要 叫 你 們 在 我 裡 面 有 平 安 。 在 世 上 , 你 們 有 苦 難 ; 但 你 們 可 以 放 心 , 我 已 經 勝 了 世 界 。

May all of us have love, peace and joy!
