John 14:27-31

The Word of God

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.

    • The peace that Jesus gives is available to me; I have to do nothing to receive it. But maybe that’s the problem – I want to do something to earn what Jesus offers as a free gift. Lord, help me to do nothing in this time of prayer but to be ready to receive what you offer.

    • Jesus’ farewell wish is ‘Peace!’ His gift of peace is not a state, but a relationship. It is the fruit of deeply abiding in him. This relationship will never fail. It will enable the disciples to endure suffering and rejection.
    • Lord, may the prayer of the Sacred Space community shape us to be instruments of your peace in a divided world. As I emerge from prayer each day, may I be more peace-filled than when I began.

    • Throughout the Old and New Testament there are echoes of the words ‘Do not be afraid’ and ‘Do not let your hearts be troubled.’ The evil forces of this world have no power over Jesus, and need have no power over us as his disciples. That is why we need not be afraid.
    • Do I rejoice in the peace which Jesus gives me? Love changes everything, and my troubles and fears are to be put in their place within the limitless love which God has for me. This is the peace Jesus offers, not a life free of challenges or suffering.

    • The peace that Jesus promises is not an escape from trouble - the peace that the world gives - but rather the courage to face it calmly. As he spoke these words of peace, he was walking out to Gethsemane and his passion.
    • Lord, that is the peace I seek: to be able to face sorrow and pain without the overwhelming fear that all is lost.
    • At one of Jesus' most frightening moments he encourages his friends not to be troubled or fearful. A big message that God gives to us is not to fear. God knows that we are easily made fearful, anxious and troubled. At that moment God walks with us, hand in hand, with deep care, wanting us to be safe. Even when in fear or anxiety, we are safe because we belong to God. In that is our peace.
    • Peace can exist in the heart at times of great turmoil and trouble, pain and illness. The peace of Christ sort of invades us gently and fills the spaces of our personality which are open to peace and often need peace. It is the peace of healing and forgiveness, and the peace which comes from doing what we know to be our calling. Sometimes, even within the toughest times of life, we can sense this peace of Jesus.
    • I repeat Jesus' promise, making it my prayer for today, "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you." I quietly review my life, seeing what has helped my peace, recognising what is broken it down. I think of what I need to do to preserve this gift of peace that Jesus has in heart for me.
    • The troubles that concern me sometimes seems so heavy. Jesus does not just want to take them away but wants to give me instead his gift of peace and of trust. Even as I bring my troubles before the Lord I hear Jesus speak to me saying, ‘Peace, rise, let us be on our way."
    • I may not recognise the peace that Jesus gives immediately; it is not like the peace that the world gives and a troubled or fearful heart may miss the blessing. I take some time to dive deeper, beneath the surface concerns of my life, to acknowledge the peace about which Jesus speaks.
    • Jesus blesses me with his peace. It makes me feel reassured and secure. The peace that Jesus gives, however, is followed by an invitation to get up and go.
