THE FREE GIFT JESUS LEFT FOR US

 


John 14:27 NLT

“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.

 

PEACE: is defined as Freedom from Disturbance; tranquility, calm

I will try to explain it in 5 ways as it is generally used.

Then I will zoom in into only 1-way God wants us to hear today.

 

1freedom from disquieting or oppressive thoughts or emotions.

in a state of concord or tranquility. The problem was settled and his mind and he/she was at peace.***********

2a state of tranquility or quiet: such as

afreedom from civil disturbance.

ba state of security or order within a community provided for by law or custom,

3harmony in personal relations.

4aa state or period of mutual concord between governments.

ba pact or agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity.

5—used interjectionally to ask for silence or calm or as a greeting or farewell

Peace is a stress-free state of security and calmness that comes when there's no fighting or war, everything coexisting in perfect harmony and freedom. ... When you feel at peace with yourself, you are content to be the person you are, flaws and everything.

 

The Importance of Peace.

“Peace is a concept of societal friendship and harmony in the absence of hostility and violence. In a social sense, peace is commonly used to mean a lack of conflict and freedom from fear of violence between individuals or heterogeneous group.”

 

Types of Peace:

Generally, peace is classified into two types: Internal peace and External peace. Internal peace is called by another word ‗inner peace' is peace of mind or soul.

What is the difference between God's peace and the world's peace? The world's peace is temporal; Jesus' peace is eternal.

Jesus' offer of peace says to that same person, run to Jesus and to the body of Christ for comfort instead. ... Jesus' peace, on the other hand, offers surgery for the deeper issues of the heart.

 

Spiritual Peace.

Inner peace. Inner peace refers to a state of being mentally and spiritually at peace, with enough knowledge and understanding to keep oneself strong in the face of discord or stress. Being "at peace" is considered by many to be healthy and the opposite of being stressed or anxious.

 

What are the benefits of peace?

Inner peace calms down the emotions, reduces stress, tension, nervousness and agitation, and leads to happiness. Imagine how great it would be to stay calm, focused, and undisturbed by circumstances and people!

 

Our Lord and Savior Jesus saw the future need of His disciples and said this in John 14:27 NLT,

“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.

 

I am so thankful to God for giving me Jesus Christ and what He did for me and the rest of mankind on the cross. Lord, I pray that more people will come into the knowledge of who You are, and receive salvation so that they can understand why we are at peace in the midst of global calamities. I pray that more and more people will be set free from sin as they come to You Lord, and have the same peace that we have and which the world cannot give.

 

Receive Peace in Jesus’ name, Amen.
