27Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid. 28You heard me say to you, ‘I am going away, and I am coming to you.’ If you loved me, you would rejoice that I am going to the Father, because the Father is greater than I. 29And now I have told you this before it occurs, so that when it does occur, you may believe. (John 14:27-29, NRSV)
How does the world give?
And how is it we are not supposed to fear?
We can live without fear because Jesus is always with us and we have His peace. He gave us His peace and we will have it forever. Nothing will ever take His peace from us.
And we can believe it.
