The Definition of Peace

It is always helpful to define the words we are dealing with and so think about the definition of PEACE.  Peace [ceirene] means to bind together, to join, to weave together.  It means that a person is:

bound,

woven

and joined together with

himself,

with God

and with others.

The Hebrew word SHALOM means freedom from trouble and much more.  It means:

experiencing God’s highest good,

enjoying the very best,

possessing all the inner good possible.

wholeness and soundness.

good, enjoying the very best.

prosperity in the widest sense.

especially prosperity in the spiritual sense of having a soul that blossoms and flourishes.

At Peace with the Past

Isaiah 43:18-19

“Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.

Philippians 3:13-14 

Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

2 Corinthians 5:17 ESV

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

Ephesians 4:31-32 ESV

Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
