The work of righteousness will be peace

17 And the work of righteousness will be peace,
And the service of righteousness, quietness and [a]confidence forever.  Isaiah 32:17

When our lives are lived in accordance with God’s word we will experience peace in all things.  When we come to faith in Jesus Christ we are declared as righteous because the righteousness of Christ is applied to our lives.  But we are also called to live out holiness.  We have been created in the image of God and before we come to Christ we are in bondage to the curse of sin and death.  But after we have placed our faith and trust in Jesus Christ we are set free.

The purpose of walking with Christ is to bring glory and honor to His name.  Many will argue against the truth of the Bible and even against God Himself.  But what the world can’t argue against is a life that is transformed into the image of Christ.  If we desire peace and quietness in our lives then may our hearts and lives be fully committed to the Lord.  May we live for Him each day and continue to grow in our relationship with Him.
