You can't find this anywhere else ...

Real, soul-satisfying peace only comes through a right relationship with Jesus Christ.

You can't find it anywhere else.

"I am leaving you with a gift --- peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give, so don't be troubled or afraid," John 14:27.

C.S. Lewis wrote about such a peace from Christ this way:

"A car is made to run on petrol [gas], and it would not run properly on anything else. Now God designed the human machine to run on himself. He himself is the fuel our spirits were designed to burn, or the food our spirits were designed to feed on. There is no other."

Lewis concluded, "That is why it is just no good asking God to make us happy in our own way without bothering about religion. God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing."

If you want peace of mind and heart, a peace that runs so deep it surpasses human understanding, you will find it only in a life fully surrendered to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Do you have that peace today? If not, you can!
