The best test I use to check my level of peace is this: can you drive alone for an hour without the radio on? Total silence. You and your thoughts?
The answer for me used to be no. I needed something to distract me or I tore myself apart. The atonement of Jesus Christ is the biggest miracle of the Lord's ministry. Total undeserved freedom.
If you accept His mercy it changes you and your life. He is the ultimate peace.
Are you at peace? Are you a peacemaker?
Today, look up the definition of Peace in Hebrew and Greek. Become a Peacemaker in your family, at work, and with your friends.
