John 14:25-27

Joh 14:25 “I have spoken these things to you while I am staying with you.

Joh 14:26 But the Discipler, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and remind you of everything I have said to you.

Joh 14:27 “Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you. I do not give to you like the world gives. Don’t let your heart be agitated or intimidated.

Peace gift

The peace that Jesus gave his disciples while he was among them was the kind of peace that could withstand diversity because they had confidence in him to overcome it. But Jesus knew that under the discipling influence of the invisible discipler – the Holy Spirit – they would be tempted to anxiety and cowardice. So, he warned them of that possibility.

Jesus has given us his Holy Spirit. He will not take that gift back when we need it most. God’s presence and power will be with us when we face the challenges of living for him.

Lord, thank you for the peace gift.
