Peace starts here at the Lord's Table among God's people but it does not end here. We are the first fruits of the Resurrection of the Lord but the knowledge of the Lord Jesus will be as the waters that cover the sea, and the peace that passes our understanding will be the peace that fills the whole Earth.
It is very important that we hear these truths declared and then see, feel, smell and taste that the Lord is good. God’s peace is granted to you and from here expands to fill the whole Earth.
This is not a peace without cost. Peace never is. It required death, even the death of the only perfect man that ever entered the world. And it requires our death as well. We are crucified with Christ: nevertheless we live; yet not us, but Christ living in us: and the life which we now live in the flesh we live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved us, and gave himself for us.
And this life, that is Christ, is the life that will fill the whole Earth, for all that call upon the Lord in faith, believing what God has done in Jesus Christ.
