“Peace to you.” They are the very first words the risen Lord Jesus says to the gathered disciples on Easter evening. Something important there. “Peace to you.” Those words summarize the result of Jesus’ work. What does it mean that Jesus died? “Peace to you.” What does it mean that Jesus rose again? “Peace to you.” What now is God’s attitude to you? “Peace to you.” It’s what everyone is searching for. World peace. Inner peace. But the fundamental condition of mankind is a lack of peace.
