PEACE OF CHRIST

COLOSSIANS 3:15

FOCAL POINT: BIBLICAL BASED PEACE

THE APOSTLE PAUL ADDRESSED THE ISSUE OF HERESY IN HIS LETTER TO COLOSSI. HE EXPOUNDS THE COMPLETE ADEQUACY OF CHRIST REFUTING THE VAIN, HUMANISTIC PHILOSOPHY TAUGHT BY SOME. AMONG OTHER ISSUES, HE ALSO ADDRESSES THE ISSUE OF CHRIST RULING YOUR HEART IN PEACE.

EXPOSITION ON COLOSSIANS 3:15:

NOTICE THE ORDER OF THE WORDS PEACE, RULE AND HEARTS. THE ORDER APPEARS IMPORTANT.

WORD MEANING OF PEACE: SECURITY, SAFETY, PROSPERITY, FELICITY (BECAUSE PEACE AND HARMONY MAKE AND KEEP THINGS SAFE AND PROSPEROUS)

WORD MEANING OF RULE: TO DIRECT, CONTROL

WORD MEANING OF HEART: OF THE SOUL SO FAR AS IT IS AFFECTED AND STIRRED IN A BAD WAY OR GOOD, OR OF THE SOUL AS THE SEAT OF SENSIBILITIES, AFFECTIONS, EMOTIONS, DESIRES, APPETITES AND PASSIONS

THE TRANQUIL STATE OF A SOUL, ASSURED OF ITS SALVATION THROUGH CHRIST, SHOULD NOT BE IN TURMOIL. IT IS CONTENT WITH ITS EARTHLY LOT.

A FALSE PEACE IN A BELIEVER PRODUCES THE FOLLOWING TESTIMONY: DISHONESTY, A TRUMPED-UP PROFESSION, UNTRUTH, A COUNTERFEIT, INCORRECTNESS AND INSINCERITY. BIBLICAL PEACE PRODUCES THE EXALT OPPOSITE.

VERSE 15 SURELY MEANS WHAT IT SAYS. THE PEACE OF GOD MUST RULE A BELIEVER’S HEART. FACED WITH A LIFE DECISION, YOUR DECISION SHOULD PRODUCE PEACE NOT DISCORD IN YOUR LIFE.

PROVERBS 4: 23 “KEEP YOUR HEART WITH ALL DILIGENCE, FOR OUT OF IT SPRING THE ISSUES OF LIFE.” (NKJV)

PHILIPPIANS 14: 7 “AND THE PEACE OF GOD, WHICH SURPASSES ALL UNDERSTANDING, WILL GUARD YOU HEARTS AND MINDS THROUGH JESUS CHRIST.”(NKJV)

JOHN 14:1 “LET NOT YOUR HEART BE TROUBLED, YOU BELIEVE IN GOD, BELIEVE ALSO IN ME.” (NKJV)

JOHN 14: 27 “PEACE I LEAVE WITH YOU, MY PEACE I GIVE TO YOU, NOT AS THE WORLD GIVES DO I GIVE TO YOU. LET NOT YOUR HEART BE TROUBLED, NEITHER LET IT BE AFRAID.” (NKJV)

ROMANS 8: 6 “FOR TO BE CARNALLY MINDED IS DEATH, BUT TO BE SPIRITUALLY MINDED IS LIFE AND PEACE.” (NKJV)

APPLICATION: TRUE PEACE ALWAYS BRINGS COMFORT TO YOUR HEART!
