My name is Irene and I want to know if my name is mentioned in the Bible?
Yes and no …
It is not mentioned in the Bible any woman whose name was Irene.
But the name Irene is the Greek word eirene, which means peace, harmony and is widely used in the New Testament over 100 times.
Because you have such a beautiful name, you must know some important things about peace from the Bible.
You can have peace with God only through faith in Jesus Christ
All people are enemies with God because of the sin in which they were born and live. The fate of people who insist to remain enemies by sin is eternal punishment in the hell fire. God wants to remove this feud and reconcile us with Him. Therefore, in His love, He sent His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of peace to reconcile us to Himself through Him.
Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 5:1)(NASB)
The peace of Jesus surpasses all human understanding
Before his crucifixion, Lord Jesus told his disciples:
Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful. (John 14:27)(NASB)
Later, the Apostle Paul while he was in chains in the Roman prison, he wrote the Christians from the city of Philippi, which otherwise, went through difficult times, too:
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7)(NASB)
If you have not done it before, reconcile with God through faith in Jesus Christ as soon as possible. And if you have reconciled with Him, be a messenger of peace. Go and tell all people the Gospel of peace. God help you so.
