Where are we to find peace in this turbulent world? Some say that violence must be met with greater violence. Others say, “Live and let live.” Still others say, “Love is the answer.” Yet it seems that those with power too often wield it for their own benefit. When the strong rule the weak, does meaningful peace have a chance?

Our problem is that turmoil resides inside each of us. Our hearts churn with fear and apprehension. Peace seems impossible.

Author and speaker Bill Crowder writes about our elusive quest for peace by looking at a frame from the life of Jesus. Even as He faced His own death, Jesus comforted others. “Peace I leave with you,” He said. “My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful” (john 14:27 nasb).

We invite you to read more about the transcendent peace that Jesus offers us.
