Perfect Peace-John 14:25-31

Jesus spoke words of peace to His friends after their last supper together, when He prepared them for the events that would soon follow: His death, resurrection, and the coming of the Holy Spirit. Describing a peace unlike—anything the world can give—He wanted them to learn how to find a sense of well-being even in the midst of hardship. Later, when the resurrected Jesus appeared to the frightened disciples after His death, He greeted them, saying, “Peace be with you!“ Now He could give them, and us, a new understanding of resting and what He has done for us. As we do, we can find the awareness of a confidence far greater than our ever-changing feelings. Jesus came to usher peace into our lives and our world.
