3. We Have Found Peace

 Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ said, "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you," and He gave us this ultimate peace on the Cross. He confirmed this to His apostles when He resurrected from the dead and said, "Peace be with you." (John 14:27; 20:19, 26). In reference to this, Saint Paul said to the Colossians, "For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross" (Colossians 1:19-20). He also said to the Ephesians, "But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For He Himself is our peace" (Ephesians 2:13 -14).
