The Peace of God

    The Letter to the Philippians

    What is it that enables Jesus' followers to live in a world marred by chaos, confusion and conflict? Writing from a prison cell, the apostle Paul encourages Jesus' followers in Philippi to live a life with the “Peace of God” in full purview. The conflict between two sisters (Euodia and Syntyche), the continual presence of troublemakers, and the potential for misfortune to befall the congregants presents an occasion for Paul to remind Jesus' followers to embrace the “mind of Christ” (2:5) and to bask in the peace of God that surpasses all understanding (4:7). Whether it is our relationship with one another or our interactions with those in our community, we desire to live as ones blessed by the Peace of God and as ones seeking to spread the Peace of God.
