Lesson 5 - How to Find Personal Peace

Have you ever felt as though something was missing in your life? Have you ever asked, “How can I find deeper meaning? How can I find peace of mind?” Have you ever wondered, “Is there anything more to life than getting up in the morning and going to work every day and coming home and eating supper and watching television and going to bed, getting up and doing the same thing the next day and the next? Is there anything more to life than the humdrum of the daily routine?”

Suppose someone discovered a pill that would guarantee permanent peace of mind. Its producer would probably become a multimillionaire overnight. Everywhere people are looking for personal peace. Multitudes are burdened with guilt. Feeling insecure, emotionally troubled, and unaccepted produces an inner void. Mind-related diseases such as stomach ulcers, heart attacks, and nervous breakdowns are the scourge of our society. One root cause of these diseases is an inner sense of restlessness.

Our lesson today focuses on God’s solution to the problem of guilt. It presents the only real answer to the problem of how to find peace of mind.
