One of the attributes that I admired most in Christians before I was saved was the kind of peace they seemed to have. I’ve been chasing after that peace ever since.
In John 16:33 Jesus is facing the cross squarely in the eyes and his so-called disciple Judas is out betraying Him to his enemies and he says to the other 11 disciples “that in Me you may have peace”. It sounds as though Jesus is offering peace to them at a time when it’s most difficult to imagine that He could be personally experiencing peace and yet is modeling peace for them. So peace is something we accept from Jesus and just as he is our savior, our righteousness, our life, He is also our peace. And we receive His peace the same way we receive every other gift from Him by faith/trust in Him and our personal obedience. Peace is ours by the asking, believing, conforming our lives to Him. Jesus is the Prince of Peace and desires to share that peace with each and everyone of His disciples.
