How can I obtain peace?

This is the most important question anyone will ever ask. All the knowledge in the world cannot surpass him who can say, "I have the peace of God in my heart." The Lord Jesus said: "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid" (John 14:27). This is extremely significant because Jesus differentiates between the peace of the world and the peace that only comes from Him. Why can He give peace that is better than all others? Because He paid the price for eternal peace when he sacrificed Himself on Calvary's cross for our sins: Peace is not only the absence of war or conflict, but real peace is having the knowledge that our sins have been forgiven, giving us peace with God. When we ask the Lord Jesus for forgiveness, we receive this peace of which the Apostle Paul wrote: "And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus" (Philippians 4:7).
