Luke 10:5-6

Whenever you enter a house, first say, ‘May peaceG1515 be on this house!’
And if a peace-loving person is there, your peace will remain on him, but if not, it will
return to you.Luke 10:5-6 (NET)

Luk 10:5
1 Sam 25:6; Isa 57:19; Mat 10:12-13; Act 10:36; 2 Cor 5:18-20; Eph 2:17

Then you will say to my brother, “PeaceH7965 to you and your house! Peace to all that is yours!
1 Samuel 25:6 (NET)

I am the one who gives them reason to celebrate.  Complete prosperity is available both to those who are far away and those who are nearby,” says the Lord, “and I will heal them.
Isaiah 57:19 (NET)

I create the fruit of the lips; Peace, peace to him that is far off, and to him that is near, saith the LORD; and I will heal him.
Isaiah 57:19 (KJV)

And if the house is worthy, let your peace come on it, but if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you.
Matthew 10:13 (NET)

You know the message he sent to the people of Israel, proclaiming the good news of peace through Jesus Christ (he is Lord of all)—
Acts 10:36 (NET)

And he came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near,
Ephesians 2:17 (NET) 

Luk 10:6
2 Thess 3:16;James 3:18

Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with you all.
2 Thessalonicense 3:16

And the fruit that consists of righteousness is planted in peace among those who make peace.
James 3:18
I have learned a lot about the word peace.  What does it mean when a Christian blesses you with peace?

If you wish peace/(shâlôm) shalom on someone, you are wishing them "peace (literally or figuratively); by implication prosperity: - one, peace, quietness, rest, + set at one again."

It is a greeting.

You are wishing them to be safe, well, happy, wishing them good welfare in their health, prosperity and peace.  You are wishing God's favour upon them.  Wishing them to be wholly well.  In all aspects of their lives.

Wow!  What a blessing when someone blesses you with PEACE!  So many of God's blessings in one word.

When the person you are blessing is not welcoming and not seeking peace, your peace returns to you.

I know true peace can only come from God, peace that surpasses all understanding.

Such a small word encompassing so many blessings. :)  

Do Christians even greet others with a peace blessing, especially unbelievers?  Time to change that and start blessing people with the peace of Jesus when we greet them!  God blesses even the unbeliever.  He blesses them to show them His mercy and goodness, to draw them to Him.  So let us bless them when we greet them.

Thanks for reading! :)  Shalom!
