How Can We Find Peace? (May 1998)

May 1998
Volume 7, Number 5

Ours is not a peaceful world. War, crime, violence, and disaster surround us on every side. Nevertheless, we can have peace, a peace that "surpasses all understanding" (Philippians 4:6-7). This peace is a gift of God, and it can be ours through our relationship with him.  (CGG Photo)

The Fruit of the Spirit:

We live in a world that has little or no idea what true peace is or how it is achieved. John Ritenbaugh shows how we can produce godly peace even in the midst of turmoil and why it is such an important virtue.

A Portable Peace
by David F. Maas

Peace is less of an external situation than an internal state. As such, we can have peace wherever we happen to be. We can help ourselves create this state by occasionally getting away from the hustle and bustle of modern life.
