Without Jesus, we will absolutely face anxiety, fear, conflict insecurity, distrust, doubt and it will tear us to pieces. That is why Jesus is our peace. He bridges the gap. He overcomes those things so that he is our calm, courage, harmony, security, trust, faith. He is it. I have no desire to confront life without him as my peace. I already tried it without him. It is convoluted and labor intensive because you have to rely on yourself and/or others to try and make it through this life. And you and they will FAIL. Not all the time, not even most of the time, but enough of the time. Then when you try it the other way, the hard things don’t go away, but you no longer are responsible for solving them. So, that’s where the peace comes in.
