“爱你律法的人有大平安， 什么都不能使他们绊脚。”诗篇 119:165
Great peace have they who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble. Psalm, 119:165
司布真这样描述平安：因着主的复活，我们得到平安。如果耶稣自己没有平安，他不会对我们说：愿你们平安 (参路24:36)。 他很沉着、淡定，他在世界的一生起起伏伏，但是他复活之后，一切变得简单。他不用再和祭司、法利赛人争论不休。因为他已经复活！你的生命中有基督的平安吗？
Psalm 119:165 says that peace is the gift of God. He has a formula for peace. His formula is in the person of His Son, Jesus Christ, whom He has designated as Prince of Peace. The nations of this world have rejected the peace that God offers. They plan and build for war. Yet there are millions of people around the world who do have peace at this moment because they have found the secret of peace. They have peace in their hearts, as the Bible teaches: “Being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”The real war in which men are engaged is a war of rebellion against God. This rebellions has brought about destruction, suffering, misery, frustration, and a thousand and one ills to the population of the world. God longs to see this rebellion cease. He has sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to the cross as a demonstration of His love and mercy. He asks us to come to that Cross in a repentance of our sins and submission of our will to Him. He promises a peace treaty for all who will come by faith.
Wise old Spurgeon described the peace of God this way:In the resurrection our nature will be full of peace. Jesus Christ would not have said, “Peace be unto you” (Luke 24:36) if there had not been a deep peace within Himself. He was calm and undisturbed. There was much peace about His whole life; but after the resurrection His peace becomes very conspicuous. There is no striving with scribes and Pharisees, there is no battling with anyone after our Lord is risen.Do you have Christ’s peace in your life?
