2 Peter 3:14 NKJV

Therefore beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless.

Peter wrote prophetically about the end of the world and the dawning of a new age with new heavens and a new earth where righteousness lives. He then encouraged his readers to be diligent to be found by the Lord in peace. This gives significant importance to us being in peace. Jesus left us His peace and exhorted us to not allow our hearts to be troubled. That puts responsibility on us to take charge of our emotions and maintain the peace bequeathed to us by Christ. Sometimes that takes aggressive action. As we noted before, our level of trust has something to do with our level of peace. May the Lord find us trusting Him and in peace when He comes for us.
