. . .Peace

Peace is the fourth thing the Spirit gives. But what does peace mean? Maybe a frustrated mother tells her noisy children that she wants peace in the house. Or world leaders get together and talk about peace. The peace in these examples means “no fighting.”
But in our Bible Reading, Jesus talked about a different kind of peace. This peace is an inner feeling of comfort and safety. Even if people around us are fighting, we can still have this kind of peace. This peace happens when we belong to Jesus and know that He will come again someday.
In our verses, Jesus was meeting with His disciples right before He was killed. Jesus knew that He would die, and He wanted His followers to feel His love and peace.
Jesus wants you to have this peace, too. Follow and obey Him. Then you will have His eternal peace. And other people will see this peace in your life and want to follow Jesus, too.
