Christ’s peace – John 16:33

I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.

Have you ever found yourself watching a TV series and intentionally stepping back to gain perspective or restore your emotional balance? I do it all the time. What I mean is something like this. Here you are, watching a show and it’s Season 1 of 7. The story has taken a number of exciting turns and the tension is high. It looks for all practical purposes as if the main character has so way out. Surely he or she is going to die. But wait. It is, you remind yourself, Season 1 of 7. It cannot end that badly or there would not be seven seasons. There must be a way out, a fortuitous turn in the story. This is what we face in the world as followers of Christ.

In the world we will have tribulation. That’s a promise. We also know that Christ has overcome the world. His peace is ours. Come what may, our eternity with Jesus is secure. Hold onto him and regardless what happens it has to end well. Not even death can separate us from the love of Christ. By all accounts, death will be more of an entrance into ultimate, intimate fellowship with him.

Take heart, Christian believer. Your Savior, personal Sacrifice and Substitute has overcome the world. As a result in him we may have peace.

In the week leading up to his crucifixion, Jesus looks briefly toward the future. A big lesson is that Christians should be watching and waiting expectantly for Jesus while serving him now here on earth.

If you have ever found Bible Prophecy challenging or confusing, you are not the first. The Thessalonians had the same problem – and they were taught personally by Paul. So Paul writes this letter to correct some of their misconceptions and encourage them to live like they really know Jesus.
