Many people live under a misapprehension of the nature of real peace. In this passage, the apostle Paul shows us that this is not something that comes to us in certain circumstances but something we must actively pursue. He gives us a number of steps to follow in this process:

  • Be truly like-minded with one another
  • Obey the command to rejoice in the Lord
  • Spread gentleness in the church
  • Do not allow yourself to become worried. Rather, pray
  • Train your mind to think only on those things which are good

We are challenged to pursue this peace for ourselves and to enjoy it as our possession here and now.
