Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 254

  1. “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you” (John 14:27).

Peace may be the most elusive of Christ’s concepts to fully grasp. What does He mean? At His birth, angels announced peace on Earth as though heavenly invaders were coming with a benevolent mission. But surely they meant more. Often we see this verse and ascribe an inner settlement and ease as its definition, but surely it means more. Is it a release from striving? Is it an acceptance that stills our greatest insecurities? Is it a promise given to us by a God who would otherwise judge? Or is it even more? Today’s best answer is “yes” to all the above. Jesus came to restore us to the peace we were designed to know. He took sin’s devastation on himself, extending forgiveness and a cleansing that would bring us…peace.
