Peace, gift of God

Monday of 5th week of Easter, based on John 14:27-31

Jesus said: “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.

You heard me say to you, ‘I am going away, and I am coming to you.’ If you loved me, you would rejoice that I am going to the Father, because the Father is greater than I. And now I have told you this before it occurs, so that when it does occur, you may believe. I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming. He has no power over me; but I do as the Father has commanded me, so that the world may know that I love the Father. Rise, let us be on our way.”

  1. Peace to you, my friend! I longed to know better and understand the fullness and depth of PEACE today and YOU ARE the SPIRIT’S RESPONSE! I believe and I wonder… Please pray for us, Judith. It was gift to meet Gene on Saturday as she oozes LOVE-CARE-SERVANTHOOD! x/o Pat
