And Peace, from God our Father

Philippians 1:2 …and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. 

Christians are to demonstrate virtuous thoughts, feelings and actions at all times of which peace is one of the most needed yet less exercised. These virtues we are to show before men are the perfections of wisdom, knowledge, justice, truth, love, patience, holiness, goodness, grace, joy, peace, faith, and other attributes and powers of the Divine Trinity. These virtues are to be demonstrated by Christians to angels and men (1Pet. 1:12; 1Cor. 4:9; Eph. 3:9-10)

1Thessalonians 4:11-12 instructs us to study [to work hard] to be quiet, and to do our own business and to work with our own hands. The thought is that of a disposition and life of peace, and contentment; even temperament; to be meek, and learn self-control in all things; not to permit anything to disturb or cause a display of temper tantrums or disturb the peace of others. There were a few idle, tattling people in their congregation, who, instead of working, went from place to place carrying on gossip, meddling with the business of others, and causing splits or divisions. Hence, the commands to quit such practices, to do their own business, let others alone, hold their peace, walk honestly toward the world, and work with their own hands so they would have no time to meander and gossip.

We have ten commands from Scripture that can cure all worry: Permit the peace of God to garrison or keep your heart and mind through Jesus Christ (Php. 4:7). Renounce all worry; then by prayer, supplication, and thanksgiving, make all requests known to God (Php. 4:6; Jas. 4:7). Think on right things (Php. 4:8). Keep mind stayed on God (Isa. 26:3). Use the weapons of spiritual warfare (2Cor. 10:4-6). Put on the whole armour of God (Eph. 6:10-18). Have faith in God (Matt. 6:25-34; 7:7-11; 17:20; 21:22; Mark 11:22-24). Live and walk in the Spirit (Gal. 5:16-26; Rom. 6:14-23; 8:1-13). Do not cast away confidence (Heb. 3:6, 12-14; 6:11-12; 10:19-23, 35-39). Cast all your cares upon God (1Pet. 5:7).

‘From God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.’ Another reference to two separate divine Persons in the Godhead.
