The God of Peace

Romans 15:33

 

This seems to have been one of Paul’s favorite names for God (2 Corinthians 13:11; Philippians 4:9; 1 Thessalonians 5:23; 2 Thessalonians 3:16; Hebrews 13:20; Romans 16:20). What a good name for him it is — “The God of Peace!

He entered into a Covenant of Peace with Christ for us (Ezekiel 34:25; 37:26). And the Counsel of Peace is between them both (Zechariah 6:13).

      It is God the Spirit who gives sinners, when born again by his grace, “peace in believing” (Romans 15:13), true and solid peace of conscience, the peace of God, “which passeth all understanding.
