John 14:27

Explanation and Commentary on John 14:27

Jesus is always telling His disciples to have peace, not getting their hearts troubled for any reason. The reason for this is because of what He has seen. He knows what will happen to them.

In what should we have peace? The only one who can give peace is Jesus. It is true they say, you can’t give what you don’t have. No one can give the peace that he or she doesn’t have. Many find peace in this world, but there is no peace in this world, so it’s difficult to get. It is in Christ that peace is, and it where you can get for yourself.

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.”

One of the precious things that Jesus has to offer mankind is peace. Man will be troubled, life will give trouble and many people will give up, but Christ is telling us that He has left us with peace. He is peace and now He has given us peace. Jesus has done this so that we can have it when we face challenges, persecutions, and the things that can break us.

“I do not give to you as the world gives.”

How does the world give and what does it give? What the world gives is not peace. There is no peace in the world. Trouble is what the world gives.

“Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”

This is the final words of this verse. Jesus told his disciples that there is nothing to worry about. If there is a tiny bit of trouble, do not let it grow. Remember the peace of God through Christ Jesus and that you have been given that peace. You are to have this courage against challenges ao that you do not let your heart be troubled.
