The God of Peace

Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen -Romans 15:33

If you consider God in the trinity of His persons for a few moments, you will see that in each-Father, Son, and Holy Ghost-the title is apt and correct, “the God of peace.” There is God the everlasting Father, He is the God of peace, for He from all eternity planned the great covenant of peace, whereby He might bring rebels nigh unto Him, and make strangers and foreigners fellow-heirs with the saints, and joint-heirs with His Son Christ Jesus.

So is Jesus Christ, the second person, the God of peace for “He is our peace who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us.” He makes peace between God and man. His blood sprinkled on the fiery wrath of God turned it to love, or rather that which must have broken forth in wrath, though it was love for ever, was allowed to display itself in loving-kindness through the wondrous mediatorship of Jesus Christ; and He is the God of peace because He makes peace in the conscience and in the heart.

So is the Holy Ghost the God of peace. He of old brought peace, when chaotic matter was in confusion, by the brooding of His wings: He caused order to appear where once there was nothing but darkness and chaos. So in dark chaotic souls He is the God of peace…When by earthly cares we are tossed about, like the sea-bird, up and down, up and down, from the base of the wave to the billows’ crown, He says, “Peace be still.” ~ C.H. Spurgeon
