The gift of peace.

Posted by appolus on November 21, 2021

Joh 16:33  These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. 

Jesus is speaking to His followers who are just about to be scattered. Persecution and tribulation was coming straight at them. And Jesus says “in me,” you may have peace. “In the world,” you will have persecution. There is one thing certain in this world, you will have tribulation. There is one thing we need above all other things in the midst of this tribulation, peace, His peace. And if we are “in Him,” then we have access to such peace.

Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you;not as the world gives do I give you. Let not your heart be troubled neither let it be afraid (John 14:27) Jesus has left this peace for us, He has given it to us, yet like every other gift, it must be possessed. We must abide “in Him.” We must be “anxious for nothing.” We must “seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness.” We must give thanks in all things (not for all things) We must rejoice in all things ( not for all things) If we do these things, then we shall possess the peace that we already have.

This is the key to overcoming, being obedient to the Word of God. “If you abide in My Word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free(John 8:31) Free indeed brothers and sisters. Free from the cruel task master of fear. Free from anxiety. Free to love your enemies. Free to walk in the peace that the Lord has given you as a most precious gift. The gift given must be received and then it must be exercised by the conditions laid down. Today is the day to begin.
