Chapter 5 – Finding Peace:
There is a peace that comes from having a beautiful and carefree environment, but there is a greater peace that comes from Jesus. His peace guards us in troubling surroundings and gives rest to our souls. Jesus freely gives His peace to His followers, but there are things that can and do rob us of this great gift. We must be careful not to let such things steal our treasure.
Three Lessons on Finding Peace:
- 1. Peace Through Repentance: Concealing our sins will rob us of the peace of Jesus.
- 2. Peace Through Forgiveness: Holding unforgiveness toward others will rob us of the peace Jesus promises.
- 3. Peace Through Releasing Control: Trying to control the things that we have no control over will rob us of the peace that comes from Jesus.
