“Helping People Fulfill God’s Plan For Their Lives Through Business”
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27
Jesus is telling us not to be afraid nor let our hearts be troubled.
What is the peace which the world gives?Look at the world. It is in turmoil, morally upside down, and financially bankrupt. We see failing families, failing marriages, wars, hatred, violence, sexual abuse, adultery, mass shootings, wickedness, immorality, vulgarity, gang violence, corporate greed, political selfishness, ineffective government, unemployment, bitterness, rage, a new definition for marriage, abortion, teen pregnancy, sex slavery, drug abuse, substance abuse, murder and Godlessness everywhere.
Jesus says,”I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
The world cannot give you peace. The world is filled with shame, guilt, fear, and condemnation. The world covers over the shame, guilt, fear and condemnation with the so-called pleasures of life, money, and power and is often covered over with addiction.
Jesus is telling us there will be trouble in the world, yet He is telling us not to be troubled or fearful. You can have PEACE in HIM because HE has overcome the world. The PEACE is in HIM, not the world. PEACE is found in the eternal living Jesus Christ in which you receive God’s abundant provision of grace and HIS gift of righteousness. There is no condemnation in those who are in Christ Jesus. What Jesus Christ has set free is free indeed. You are no longer under the yoke of slavery to this world.
The peace which Jesus Christ gives is eternal salvation which allows you to have a peace which transcends all understanding. In Christ there is no fear, but power, love and a sound mind. In Christ there is no condemnation. In Christ you can go through the storms and turbulence of this world and not lose your joy and peace. This is a peace which the world cannot give you.
