Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 04/27/14

This week’s scripture is from John:

Jesus Christ 4“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)

In this world peace is fleeting; our own hearts are often troubled, but our Lord Jesus Christ sacrificed Himself that we might have peace. He took our sins upon Himself and gave Himself up to death on the cross that through His blood, death, and resurrection, we could be reconciled to God our Father and redeemed, that through the Holy Spirit we could have the peace that only the Lord can give, a peace not tied to our circumstances or to how we feel, but a peace that passes understanding, a peace given by God alone that gives us calm in times of trouble, that knows not fear, but trusts in the Lord and is at rest. Lean on Him and He will give you peace.

May the Lord bless you with His peace in every situation and may your heart not be troubled.
