Why Do I Say “Peace in Christ”?

Peace in Christ

Last updated on November 25th, 2019


If you ever wondered why I close my responses to anyone with the phrase “Peace in Christ”, there’s a very simple answer to that. It’s a variation of a phrase I found in 1 Peter 5:12. Peter states at the closing of his letter, “Peace be to you all who are in Christ.” Interestingly enough, it was a common greeting. Both Apostle Peter and Apostle Paul in their letters said something along the lines of, “Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

This is a short post for today since I didn’t have too many thoughts on my mind. Perhaps these expressions can be something we mimic in some way in our interactions. When I end my responses to you all with the phrase, I genuinely do hope you all find peace in your faith. That is what I seek and hope for everyday in my own journey of faith. With that, I leave you with the phrase once again.

Peace be to you all who are in Christ.

  1. Just keep doing it. When I was a teenager my one friend’s mom always answered the phone by saying the peace of Christ be with you. Back then we didn’t know who was calling. I thought she was very brave and I haven’t forgotten it to this day. Keep planting those seeds.

    1. Hi Scott. Thanks for your comment. Wow, that is pretty brave. I’m glad she did that and I hope it guided people to faith. Thanks for the encouragement.

      Peace to you in Christ.

  2. In today’s world, it seems a little strange to greet people in Christ, and that’s sad. It shouldn’t be strange. I tend to end my posts with a God Bless but your Peace in Christ is a wonderful ending as well. Thanks for what you do!

    1. Hi dividinghisword. Indeed, it shouldn’t be strange at all, and that’s wonderful you end your posts with a ‘God Bless’. Thanks for your encouragement.

      Peace in Christ.
