A Greater Peace

John 14:27

(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.”

The peace we hope for is more than just the absence of fighting and conflict. We long for a great wholeness of peace where there are no struggles, and we live in calmness. Jesus came from the right hand of the Father to bring us this kind of complete peace. He redeems us from that which caused all of our heartache and pain and gives us an eternal calm.

In Jesus, we have eternal life, and the love of God showering upon us. Jesus brings calm to our spiritual lives that truly spills over into our daily walk. The peace from Jesus brings us the hope of better days. No more wrestling with fearing that we’re not redeemed or that God is ignoring us. Jesus’ peace assures us that He and the Father and the Holy Spirit are listening and working in our lives, so we see their peace and live in it.
