2.The gospel is referred to as the gospel of peace because (1) we have peace with God; (2) we have the peace of God.

3.(Rom. 10:13-15) Having feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace, not only represents walking in peace, but carrying and spreading the gospel of peace to the lost and sick.
