Oh what joy it is to rest in security, comfort and in the peace of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ! Why do we search in vain for this peace elsewhere?

Such is His peace rooted in love that it alone can bring us true joy in our lives. Such is His love that He empowers us to share His peace with everyone. We are able to do when we live His Word. We are one with Him for He dwells in our hearts, our minds, our very being.  We do not have to concern ourselves with the Prince of the world, or be fearful of him and his wiles for he has no hold over us. For we live as children of God.

Jesus my Lord, my saviour let me always live in your peace, in Your love. Let me never lose my way, let me never lose You my Lord, my God. Amen

GOSPEL John 14:27–31a

Jesus said to his disciples:“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid. You heard me tell you, ‘I am going away and I will come back to you.’ If you loved me, you would rejoice that I am going to the Father; for the Father is greater than I. And now I have told you this before it happens, so that when it happens you may believe. I will no longer speak much with you, for the ruler of the world is coming. He has no power over me, but the world must know that I love the Father and that I do just as the Father has commanded me.”
