Receive His Peace (John 14:27)

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

John 14:27 (KJV)

Independent of any circumstances or conditions Jesus has already given us His peace. Our part becomes to rest in this promise, and in simple and childlike faith receive what has already been provided. The peace of God arises in our hearts as we find our wholeness, joy, satisfaction and completion in Christ.

Receive His Peace (John 14:27)

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

John 14:27 (KJV)

Independent of any circumstances or conditions Jesus has already given us His peace. Our part becomes to rest in this promise, and in simple and childlike faith receive what has already been provided.

You Already Have The Peace Of God (John 14:27)

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

John 14:27 (KJV)

The peace of God is not something we need to acquire or struggle to obtain. Independent of circumstances or conditions, notice that Jesus has already given us His peace. Our part now becomes to quiet our hearts before Him, and in simple and childlike faith receive what has already been freely provided. The peace of God arises spontaneously in our hearts as we find our wholeness, joy, satisfaction and completion in Christ.

The Excellence Of Knowing Christ (Philippians 3:8)

Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ

Philippians 3:8 (NKJV)

The excellence of knowing Jesus personally and finding fulfillment in Him means the giving up of things we may have previously relied upon for our identity and security, such as status, worldly success and achievements, and instead finding our worth completely in Christ. When Christ alone becomes our treasure—counting all things loss in comparison—we can draw upon His joy, strength and fulfillment regardless of whether we find ourselves on the mountaintop or in the valley.
