Shalom! Resurrection's Promise of Peace Through Christ


MARCH 30, 2024

Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.

- Romans 5:1(NKJV) 


As we partake in Easter, let us mediate on one of the profound benefits of Christ’s resurrection -the assurance of finding peace and solace in Him, especially amidst turbulent times. This peace, stemming from the very essence of His resurrection, possesses the power to calm our restless minds, bring comfort to our hearts, and guard us against life's storms. John 14:27 states, "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." Delving into the Hebrew roots, the word "peace" translates to "Shalom," signifying completeness, soundness in body, and overall welfare. 


Peace ensures completeness in our lives, guarding us against any sense of lack even in the face of adversity. It serves as a divine shield, rescuing us and ensuring no loss. Jesus, often depicted as the Good Shepherd, ensures the safety and well-being of every sheep under His care, as echoed in John 10:27-28. Thus, thanks to the peace bestowed upon us through His resurrection, we experience a profound sense of wholeness through the transformative power of Christ. 


Shalom also means soundness and welfare in our body. When we accept the sacrifice of Jesus on the Cross of Calvary, we have peace in our body and enjoy good health. Jehovah Rapha, our healer, works tirelessly on our behalf, ensuring soundness in our bodies and overall well-being. This is not limited to just physical health, but also emotional and mental health. Irrespective of what the report may say, we remain at peace in the name of Jesus and enjoy good health. 

Shalom also means soundness and welfare in our body. When we accept the sacrifice of Jesus on the Cross of Calvary, we have peace in our body and enjoy good health.

Similarly, the Shalom of God acts as our spiritual "marked safe" badge. When disasters strike – such as hurricanes, earthquakes, or wildfires, people often utilize various platforms to signal their safety.  Nothing makes us afraid, and nothing can intimidate us because we are beneficiaries of the Shalom of God. It gives us perfect protection. Keeping us firmly, rooted, anchored, protected, and secured in Christ. 


Another facet of Shalom is prosperity. It empowers us to prosper and experience favor even amidst turmoil. God blesses the work of our hands, bringing about unprecedented increase (Deuteronomy 28:12). This prosperity extends to every facet of our lives, be it our careers, businesses, academics, or ministry. The Shalom of God tirelessly works on our behalf, promising peace regardless of our location. 


Shalom also signifies friendship with God and humanity. God has the remarkable ability to make our enemies be at peace with us and restore broken relationships (Proverbs 16:7). This divine peace permeates all our relationships, reflecting the harmony we share with God onto those around us. God’s peace relieves us of unnecessary strife (Exodus 14:14).  


Finally, Shalom is not just a blessing; it's our inheritance. Through Christ's resurrection, we enter into a life marked by God’s Shalom, a peace that comes from a vibrant relationship with our risen Savior. 


Take a moment to reflect on the areas in your life where you need God’s peace the most. Commit them to God in prayer, and let His peace fill every corner of your being. With Christ’s resurrection, peace is not just promised but assured. Maximize the power of His resurrection as you navigate daily life. (Colossians 3:15).
