As believers in Jesus Christ, the first thing we must know is that we have peace, not that we will have it or that peace will come in the future. We have peace in this present time, in adversities, difficulties of life, problems, in all this we have peace in Christ Jesus. Our Lord said: “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid”. (John 14:27).
We have as a great example the prophets of the Old Testament and the apostles, who knew how to rejoice and have peace in the midst of persecution and in the midst of oppression.
The apostle Paul is an enormous example for himself, since this man knew what it is to suffer for the cause of Christ. To go from being a Pharisee who had a determined life, to being a servant of Christ who often lacked bread, who was often imprisoned and had to suffer the mistreatment and abandonment of many.
