"And God purposed that through (by the service, the intervention of) Him [the Son] all things should be completely reconciled back to Himself, whether on earth or in heaven, as through Him, [the Father] made peace by means of the blood of His cross." Colossians 1:20 (AMP) 
".....this peace he has made by his "blood", that is, by the shedding of it, by his death as a sacrifice, which he underwent on the cross; partly to denote the shame, and chiefly to signify the curse he endured in the room of his people: all which shows the malignant nature of sin, the strictness of justice, and that peace is made in a way of full satisfaction, is upon honourable terms, will be lasting, as it is joyful, being attended with a train of blessings:" John Gill's Exposition of the Bible 
"Peace is the infiltrating, life-giving presence of a very real God." Michel Cushatt

Peace. True peace. Real peace. God-given peace. Peace that is lasting, joyful, and accompanied with blessings. 
Peace because Jesus Christ died for my sin, and rose again, and is sitting on the Throne interceding for me. 

As I strive to be permeated with a deep sense of reverence for God (Acts 9:31; MSG), I will have a deeper understanding of God's true peace. 
Peace of Christ is a legacy. The Peace of Christ is a treasure. Because true peace comes from God.
