time') and "in every circumstance" (of place,
lit. 'in every turn') suggest a continual,
uninterrupted mental peacein good times and in

FOR ALL
12
inner peace is available to all Christians (2
Thessalonians 316)
  • Now may the Lord of peace Himself continually
    grant you peace in every circumstance. The Lord
    be with you all! (2 Thessalonians 316)

13
"may give" expresses a possibility or
obtainable wish (optative mood)implying some
doubt or uncertainty (cf. Romans 1513)
  • Now may the Lord of peace Himself continually
    grant you peace in every circumstance. The Lord
    be with you all!
  • (2 Thessalonians 316)

14
Paul's desire was for every person in the
church to have continual inner peace no matter
what difficulties they faced
15
even though this peace was available to
everyone, the apostle knew many believers in the
church would never experience it
16
FROM JESUS CHRIST
17
inner peace comes from the Lord (2
Thessalonians 316)
  • Now may the Lord of peace Himself continually
    grant you peace in every circumstance. The Lord
    be with you all!
  • (2 Thessalonians 316)

18
the Lord Jesus Christ continually gives His own
perfect peace of mind to Christians
19
if peace is continually given, then peace of
mind is always available in all the various
circumstances of lifeno matter how difficult
20
FROM THE HOLY SPIRIT
21
inner peace comes from the indwelling Holy
Spirit (Galatians 522)
  • But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,
    patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
    gentleness, self-control against such things
    there is no law (Galatians 52223).

22
peace of mind is a fruit of the Spirit and is
the natural result of walking in the Spirit (cf.
Galatians 516)
  • But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not
    carry out the desire of the flesh (Galatians
    516).

23
FROM THE BIBLE
24
inner peace comes from a knowledge of God's
Word (2 Peter 12)
  • Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the
    knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord seeing
    that His divine power has granted to us
    everything pertaining to life and godliness,
    through the true knowledge of Him who called us
    by His own glory and excellence (2 Peter 123).

25
en ('through') is a preposition of means
indicating what must be done for inner peace to
be multiplied to youBible study
26
inner peace is proportional to how much you
know about God and His Sonthe more you know, the
more peace you'll have
27
learn all you can about God (attributes, will,
desires, commands, promises) and the person and
work of Jesus Christ
28
inner peace is an obtainable wish (optative
mood)it's possible for your peace to multiply
from a few minutes to hours a day
  • May grace and peace be multiplied (plhqu/nw to
    increase greatly in number or extent) to you
    through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our
    Lord (RCL)

29
note the implied promise in this verse your
peace of mind will increase by leaps and bounds
(not added but multiplied) as you learn the Bible
  • May grace and peace be multiplied (plhqu/nw to
    increase greatly in number or extent) to you
    through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our
    Lord (RCL)

30
FROM THE PROMISES OF GOD
31
inner peace comes from believing God's promises
(Romans 1513)
  • Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and
    peace in believing (e?n tw? pisteu/ein), that
    you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy
    Spirit (Romans 1513).

32
the preposition en ('through') introduces the
means or mechanics by which mental peace is
acquiredby claiming the promises of the Bible
33
for example, claiming the promise "casting all
your care upon him" (1 Peter 57) provides inner
peace because you're no longer worried about your
problems
34
FROM PRAYER
35
inner peace comes from prayer (Philippians
467)
  • Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by
    prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let
    your requests be made known to God. And the peace
    of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall
    guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus
    (Philippians 467).

36
these verses are cause and effect first you
pray (6) and then you receive the peace of God (7)
  • (6) Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by
    prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let
    your requests be made known to God. (7) And the
    peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension,
    shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ
    Jesus.

37
peace in testing (loss, suffering, tragedy,
persecution) is beyond human comprehensionmost
are angry, afraid, or worried
38
God's peace stands guard at your heart's door
to keep worries out, to keep them from coming in
and stealing your peace of guards who keep
people in (ethnarch of Damascus put guards at the
city gates to keep Paul from escaping, 2
Corinthians 113233) or keep people out
(Josephus stationed guards along the roads to
keep couriers out of Galilee, Josephus, Life 240)
39
inner peace perpetuates itself by keeping
worries out peace of mind is so wonderful you
simply won't let anything spoil it
