Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 02/27/11

This week’s scripture is from John:

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.      (John 14:6)

Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.                    (John 14:27) 

How often our hearts are troubled within us, for we live in a troubled world full of strife and suffering. Yet in the midst of trouble Jesus promises us peace, for Jesus provides the way to peace. Because of His sacrifice for us, because of His death and resurrection, we have peace with God, and that, and that alone, can bring peace to our hearts. Because He lives, we believe and have life eternal. So let us turn our eyes upon Jesus and praise God for His goodness. Let us lift up the One who makes our hearts glad and rejoice in Him who is Lord and Savior, the Prince of Peace.

May the peace of Jesus Christ reign in your heart this day and each day as you turn to Him.
