Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
Peace in this context, is an end product of process. During a time of war or trouble, peace is that state of rest and cessation from fighting. It happens to also be one of the names of Jesus (Prince of Peace). The heart is at the center of everything(good or evil) and can cause division among the various parts (Christians). As long as Christ dwells in your heart, you can experience his peace and cultivate it in most situations. You can learn forgiveness, acceptance, love of a brother and be THANKFUL for everything in your life. The world is watching but God is our strength.
Help me oh Lord to subdue my heart and teach me your ways to become peaceful. I know you will make everything work right for my life no matter how long it takes. In Jesus’ name I pray.
