 After an epistle like this, his heart turned readily to the God of peace; for we enjoy peace in the presence of God-not only peace of conscience but peace of heart…. The absence of peace in the heart arises from the activity of the passions and the will, increased by the sense of powerlessness to satisfy or even to gratify them. (1 Thessalonians 5 by J.N. Darby)
 Here only is this development of humanity given-“body, soul, and spirit.” The object is assuredly not metaphysical, but to express man in all the parts of his being; the vessel by which he expresses that which he is, the natural affections of his soul, the elevated workings of his mind, through which he is above the animals and in intelligent relationship with God. May God be found in each, as the mover, spring and guide! In general the words “soul and spirit” are used without making any distinction between them. (1 Thessalonians 5 by J.N. Darby)
 It may be well to add that "the soul" is the seat of personality, "the spirit" is rather the expression of capacity. Hence the soul, with its affections, is the responsible "I;" as the spirit is that higher faculty capable of knowing God, but also of unutterable woe in the rejection of Him. (On 1 Thessalonians 5:12-28 by W. Kelly)
 Peace with God, the peace of God, the God of peace; such is the order of the soul's entrance into and experience of the blessing through our Lord Jesus. (On 1 Thessalonians 5:12-28 by W. Kelly)
