[January 30]
Let the peace of God rule in your hearts. Colossians 3:15
THE peace and joy which surpasseth all human understanding was not given to the world, nor is it given to the nominal Christian professor, nor to the formalist and ritualist, however zealous they may be. It is intended for and can be had only by those who receive riches of grace through the Holy Spirit— those who by obedience to the truth and its spirit grow up into Christ their living Head in all things. Such have peace, deep and abiding, and ever increasing proportionately as they come to comprehend with all saints through faith and obedience the riches of divine grace —the lengths, breadths, heights, and depths of the love of God. Z'99-93 R2456:6(Hymn 244)
