Peace to You

Peace to you is a phrase in the song "Peace" that Rich Mullins sings and wrote with co-author David Strasser. I have a brother-in-the-Lord, Josh T, from my church, that used this song to teach the gospel in the video below. I believe it is a tremendous production that will help anyone understand that God came in the flesh (John 1:1,2,14) as Jesus Christ, was crucified, was buried and was resurrected to life to give us the gospel (1 Corinthians 15:1,2,3,4).

On the day of Pentecost, when God poured out His Spirit on mankind (Acts 2:1,2,3,4), the Apostle Peter preached this gospel. When the multitude heard the first sermon of the church (Acts 2:6-36), they asked "men and brethren, what shall we do?" (Acts 2:37). Peter responded and said:

Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall be filled with the Holy Ghost (Acts 2:38).

There is only one way to have peace in this life and for eternity and that is to be filled with the Holy Ghost.

Below the video, I have given the lyrics to "Peace", as sung by Rich Mullins.


Peace

Though we're strangers, still I love you 
I love you more than your mask 
And you know you have to trust this to be true 
And I know that's much to ask 
But lay down your fears, come and join this feast 
He has called us here, you and me

And may peace rain down from Heaven 
Like little pieces of the sky 
Little keepers of the promise 
Falling on these souls 
This drought has dried 
In His Blood and in His Body 
In the Bread and in this Wine 
Peace to you 
Peace of Christ to you

And though I love you, still we're strangers 
Prisoners in these lonely hearts 
And though our blindness separates us 
Still His light shines in the dark

And His outstretched arms are still strong enough to reach 
Behind these prison bars to set us free

So may peace rain down from Heaven 
Like little pieces of the sky 
Little keepers of the promise 
Falling on these souls the drought has dried 
In His Blood and in His Body 
In this Bread and in this Wine 
Peace to you 
Peace of Christ to you

And may peace rain down from Heaven 
Like little pieces of the sky 
Like those little keepers of the promise 
Falling on these souls the draught has dried 
In His Blood and in His Body 
In the Bread and in this Wine 
Peace to you 
Peace of Christ to you 
Peace to you 
Peace of Christ to you
