“My peace I give to you.” ~John 14:27

Do you know Peace? Not like peace and quiet. Not the peace we get when the house is clean, work is through, kids go to school. I’m not talking about when wars end and peace is declared.

Not the peace we ordinarily think—the peace that sinks where no man can reach.

Jesus is peace like sun is heat. 

You can’t get near Him without feeling it. The intensity will change your appearance. Lighten your burdens, soften your heart. 

No one finds Peace. My peace I give, says the Lord. Jesus withholds Himself from no one. If we suffer without Peace this day it will be of our own refusal.

Jesus did not bring peace into the world so we might all get along. Jesus is the peace that gets all back to God.

“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace.”
