December 4

“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 (NIV)

On the last evening that Jesus was with His disciples before His crucifixion He gave them some encouraging words. What Jesus gives His followers is very different from what we find in this world. There are many disturbing things in this world and we encounter them often. Jesus knows that such things cause our hearts to be troubled. There are also things in this world to make us afraid and apprehensive. Jesus knows all about this, too. That is why He offers to give us peace. He knows how different His peace is from what the world can give. Let us accept the offer Jesus gave us.
