Real Peace

The final letter of the PEACE acronym:

E          Excellence – verse 8 in Philippians 4 indicates  “if there is any excellence....” 
If we say we believe and follow Jesus and yet we live a life that is contrary to what God tells us in His Word, we will not know His peace in this life.   The Apostle Paul gives two action points  in verses 8-9 concerning excellence,  "whatever is true, honorable, right, pure, lovely, of good report, and excellent and worthy of praise:

verse 8  think (dwell on these things)  -- it’s not enough to know the right things...
verse 9 practice (do) them.   There is an old saying, "Practice makes perfect," but from God's perspective, practicing what God expects provides for Real Peace.
