John 14: 26-27
“26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. 27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”
What has Christ given to us? He has shown us a different way to live our lives, and a different way to view people. He has given us forgiveness and a way to eternal life.
Because we believe, the Holy Spirit dwells in us, teaching us and guiding us, and is a great source of peace to us especially in times of trouble.
The world gives us material things that rust or break and are only good in this lifetime. Christ has given us spiritual wealth that lasts beyond our lives on earth into eternity.
This is our comfort. This is our peace. This is our hope.
May the love of Christ be with you
