”I have told you these things, so that you in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
Jesus Is essentially offering himself to us in this passage. He lets us know he is our way to peace and courage. He admits we live in a world which will certainly bring us sorrow. But he reminds us that in Him, this sorrow and fear can be overcome.
Lord God, I thank you for sending Jesus to lead us and teach us. You lived and breathed and walked this earth in human form to teach us to lean on you. You have filled me with courage. Amen
