Peace and security in the Lord

John 14:27: “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.”

 

Spoken during the Last Supper, this verse is Jesus comforting his disciples after telling them he will be betrayed and die. His disciples, understandably distraught, are asking him many questions about what to do after he leaves and what guidance they will have. Jesus assures them that he will not be leaving them unprepared, stating also in verse John 14:26 that the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.”

Obedience in God in Christ by the Holy Spirit, can bring us some control over our feelings. Humans are often shackled to their emotions but Jesus tells us that through the Holy Spirit, we can bring peace to ourselves, even in difficult times.
