 The Lord of Peace

The Lord of Peace

2 Thes. 3:16
Now the Lord of peace himself give you peace always by all means. The Lord be with you all.


The deepest longing of every human soul is for peace.… The Lord of Peace Himself is the only giver of peace.… Jesus Christ … is the “Lord of Peace” because that tranquility of heart and spirit, that unruffled calm which we all see from afar, and long to possess, was verily His, in His manhood, during all calamities and changes and activities of His earthly life.… Peace is not apathy … it is not indifference … it is not self-absorption. Look at the life of the “Lord of Peace.” In Him there were wholesome human emotions. He sorrowed, He wept, He wondered, He was angry, He pitied, He loved. And yet all these were perfectly consistent with the unruffled calm which marked His whole career. So peace is not stolid indifference, nor is it to be found in the avoidance of difficult duties, or the cowardly shirking of sacrifices and pains and struggles; but rather it is “peace subsisting at the heart of endless agitation,” of which the great example stands in Him who was “the Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief,” and who yet, in it all, was “the Lord of Peace.”
