Peace

Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.  Not as the world gives do I give to you.  Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.”  John 14:27

What is this peace?

The Peace of Jesus is this:  it is the known certainty that, regardless of current circumstances, my condition. . .the state of my existence. . .is GOOD.  

It is good, because I know I am the creation of the Most High God, because I know that He loves me, and because I know the context of my life is eternal.  

Because I have this peace, I experience today’s troubles within the perspective of eternity with my God.  And with that perspective, I know I cannot be defeated.

This is the peace that Jesus gives.
