Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. -Jesus
(John 14:27 NIV84)

When life is going well we may feel peace. It is easy to have peace when our health, finances and relationships are all in order. This is the temporary peace that the world gives which is dependent upon our external circumstances. The Lord Jesus gives us the gospel of peace which is not related to our external circumstances. His peace rises up internally from our soul and lasts for eternity. The peace of knowing that we have eternal salvation eliminates any fears the world may bring. There is no fear in Jesus.
