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 the Prince of Peace and he not only has giving us the gift of eternal life, but the gift of peace also. As he says he does not give as the world gives. What does he mean by that?
Let’s look at how the world gives, everyone thinks if they only had more money, a bigger house, a newer car, then they would be happy. But you can’t find peace in material objects, you find peace thru Jesus Christ.
“You heard me say, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I. John 14:28
We can also obtain Peace by letting people go, when Jesus was going to die on the cross obviously his disciples were very distraught. But Jesus is telling them I’m going to Heaven to be with God, rejoice for me.
When we lose a loved one it can be very painful also, but we can have peace in knowing they will be in Heaven just like Jesus. It’s a message straight from God, take comfort in knowing this.
I have told you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe.
Jesus is prophesying his own resurrection, his disciples may not have understood this at the time , but he came back and visited them to prove he is alive forever. Take comfort in knowing Jesus has conquered death, only thru the Prince of Peace can we have eternal life.
I will not say much more to you, for the prince of this world is coming. He has no hold over me, but he comes so that the world may learn that I love the Father and do exactly what my Father has commanded me. “Come now; let us leave John 14:30-31
Notice Jesus warns them about Satan “Prince of This World”, but he has defeated Satan as he told them he has no hold over me.
Its your choice who your going to follow, the Prince of Peace or the Prince of This World, Jesus has conquered the grave and his peace he gives to us so that we may live today in Peace even thru the chaos of this world in Jesus Name Amen
