Wesley's Notes for John 14:27


14:27 Peace I leave with you - Peace in general; peace with God and with your own consciences. My peace - In particular; that peace which I enjoy, and which I create, I give - At this instant. Not as the world giveth - Unsatisfying unsettled, transient; but filling the soul with constant, even tranquillity. Lord, evermore give us this peace! How serenely may we pass through the most turbulent scenes of life, when all is quiet and harmonious within! Thou hast made peace through the blood of thy cross. May we give all diligence to preserve the inestimable gift inviolate, till it issue in everlasting peace!

    Bruce,John 14:26.Be at peace.V.27"Let not your heart be troubled,neither let it be afraid." Be courageous. Luke 12:4-5 Jesus warns us to Fear the Lord with terror,because he has power to cast us into the lake of fire that you preach.Could the "fearful" be someone that does not have the courage to tell others about Christ?Or have Christ like courage during times of testing;trials,temptations.?

    V. 15 - Pas. Norm Paslay - Being a Christian is less about cautiously avoiding sin than about courageously doing God's will.
    We are great sinners, but He is a greater savior.
    Far too many parents are more interested in their kids making the team, than in making the Kingdom of God.

    123,the Father is greater than the son. V.28. Also, the Sons throne is in the Father's throne. Is the Father "beside Himself"?
