The Fruit of the Spirit is Peace
Written by: Ricky Spears Recorded by: Ricky Spears
This meditation is the fourth of a ten part series on The Fruit of the Spirit. In today's turbulent world, so many people are seeking peace. Unfortunately, many are seeking peace through changes to their circumstances, instead of seeking the peace of Christ in the midst of, and in spite of, their circumstances. In this guided Christian meditation, you'll contemplate some of the New Testament passages that explain what peace is, how Jesus has given us His peace, and how we can become the blessed peacemakers God has called us to be. Peace is not something we produce on our own, but rather, the fruit of the Spirit is Peace.
We began this series with a contemplative overview of The Fruit of the Spirit, and the next two episodes focused on the fruits of Love and Joy. If you would like to do this particular series of biblical meditations in order, you'll want to begin with these three meditations. Speaking of peace, you may also enjoy Mindful Worship Meditation #13 - Jehovah-Shalom, The Lord Is Peace. I've had an incredible experience with God in my life as He has used the time I've spent meditating on these passages and asking the Holy Spirit to produce better quality fruit in my life. I'd love to hear about your own experiences in the comments. (Photo by Alberto Alerigi. Original on flickr. Licensed under Creative Commons Attribution 2.0 Generic License)
