John 14:27 – Peace in Jesus

John 14:27
27
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

–Jesus promises a peace that surpasses all of our imaginations as well as anything that can be found elsewhere.  But remember Jesus’ teaching in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life”. Just as we must go through Jesus in order to reconcile with God the Father, we must also go through Jesus in order to experience all of the gifts and blessings that Jesus offers.  How could you hope to accept the Lords gift of peace, if you haven’t first accepted the Lord’s gift of Himself?
