- Peace is in the person of Jesus. Between chapter 14 and 16 is His teaching on “abiding or remaining in HIM, Christ”. True peace cannot be found anywhere except in a personal, active relationship with Him
- Jesus has left His peace in us by the Holy Spirit (in us forever) who will “bring to our remembrance all that Jesus said to us” (14:26), even the truth about His peace. He is never disconnected with what we are going through.
- The guarantee of His peace is not taken away because there is tribulation or trouble in the world, which is also a guaranteed fact. His peace is guaranteed to be ours in the midst of tribulation because Jesus has overcome the world!
- If our hearts are troubled and afraid, it’s because we have let them forget the peace Jesus has given us and we have quenched the voice of the Holy Spirit.
“Be still, my soul! The Lord is on thy side;
Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain,
Leave to thy God to order and provide;
In every change He faithful will remain.
