OUR PEACE!

John 14:27 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.

The peace we have with God is not dependent on our performance but on the righteousness of Jesus. Peace is the emotion that is in the heart of man when he knows he has no debt. We have no debt before God because wherever we fell short of righteousness by our works, Jesus supplied our deficit, as a gift. The reason we have peace is simply because we measure up to the standard of God. We couldn't say that until Jesus (the Son of God) climbed onto our side of the scale and balanced the whole thing out between us and God. Never do we need to feel that we come short of holiness, righteousness or any standard of qualification. We can have the peace of God – we don’t come short in JESUS.

Jesus gave us His peace not as the world gives but true peace He gave us.. The peace that the world gives is purely based on the “if you pay you don’t have to worry” basis. The peace of Jesus (the peace that He has) is based on the fact that Jesus is perfect before the Father, in His likeness and image.

HE GAVE US HIS PEACE!!!
