He is our Peace
For he is our peace, who hath made both one,
and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
Having abolished in his flesh the enmity,
even the law of commandments contained in ordinances;
for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;
And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross,
having slain the enmity thereby:
And came and preached peace
to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.
For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
And all things are of God,
who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ,
and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself,
not imputing their trespasses unto them;
and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
2 Cor 5:18-19.
Therefore being justified by faith,
we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
By whom also we have access by faith
into this grace wherein we stand,
and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;
And, having made peace through the blood of his cross,
by him to reconcile all things unto himself;
by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind
by wicked works,
yet now hath he reconciled
In the body of his flesh through death,
to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight.
But he was wounded for our transgressions,
he was bruised for our iniquities:
the chastisement of our peace was upon him;
and with his stripes we are healed.
Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation.
I will hear what God the LORD will speak:
for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints:
but let them not turn again to folly.
Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him;
that glory may dwell in our land.
I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep:
for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety.
Grace be unto you, and peace,
from God our Father,
and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Cor 1:3.
