Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 04/22/18

This week’s scripture is from John:

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”   (John 16:33)

The Lord did not promise us a trouble-free life. He knew that this fallen world can be a dark and troublesome place, where we find ourselves struggling against the darkness and the pain of suffering, sin, injury, and want. Try as we might we have not the power to overcome, but the Lord does, for He took the weight of sin and death upon Himself, and by His sacrifice, by His blood, death, and resurrection, He did overcome the world. He has defeated the darkness; He has triumphed; He is victorious, and in Him we can have peace. Let us rejoice and be glad, for we can have peace through our Lord Jesus Christ. Praise His holy name.

May the Lord bless you today with an abiding peace.
