Scriptural Reading John 14: 26-27
We live and survive in a jittery or agitated world. An environment controlled and is more likely to be submissive to every kind of evil influences. The minute we open our eyes whether we like it or not we will be confronted by vagueness and hesitations.
Once again as Christians, we are protected and authorized by God’s power. We have the spirit of Jesus in our spirit, soul and body and this means that we have no reason not to accomplish and follow God’s instructions.
God has always something for us. A purpose. We are a part of this purpose and sometimes we give way to some excuses when we do God’s work and it should not be delayed and it should not be this case and if He is doing something, this means we will also be rewarded.
One of the many causes of the delay of God’s work is our emotions. For whatever reason or reasons we have this feeling to step back or hold back.
v.26 But the Comforter, [which is] the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
In this passage, Jesus in His words reminded us that the Holy Spirit will teach us and will bring to our minds whatsoever He said unto us.
The word “said“ in Greek is epo, meaning a primary verb used only in the definite past tense. It is identical to rheo also a primary verb meaning flow or through the idea of pouring forth). If we are going to study deeply and carefully about what Jesus is telling us, the word “said” He was telling and referring to us are obviously His words.They are not simply words but powerful words. His words with power were poured and is flowing in our spirit, soul and body. Now having this same power given to us by our Heavenly Father through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, we can now handle and face whatever holding or taking us back from accomplishing our mission coming from God.
v.27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
These are powerful words from our savior Jesus Christ. Have we ever imagine how powerful these words are? The powers with in these words are the same powers that created our world.These words become powerful because it came from the omnipotent God!
The peace He left (Peace I leave with you) us will stay with us because He has given(my peace I give unto you) it to us and He will never take it back. It will be and is a part of our sanctification. A promise to make our lives as Christians easier.
Jesus knows that we are going to depend and look for peace outside not inside (not as the world giveth,). He knows that one way or the other we will be having a wavering faith(Let not your heart be troubled). This is why His words by the power of the Holy Spirit will continue to remind us the power of God’s words flowing in us. In the court of law if the judge said innocent then it is indeed innocent. The judge is the source of the power of the words. If the words will not come from the judge then it has no effect. The same for Christians. Jesus words are powerful because He is God himself and these words make the difference.
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. These powerful words which he left and given in order to flow in our whole being with out a doubt and with no reservation should be claimed by each and every Christians. We will continue to be a defeated Christian if we will not claim this promise.
The thing that we have to do right now is to live triumphantly through Jesus and His words inside of us, His words that is flowing in us, a peace of mind.
