“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (John 14: 27)
Peace, a serene settling of mind and body and experience, is the great gift of Christ. That true idea of man that Jesus declared and proved has been bestowed on all, a blessed and timeless gift of divine Love. We are the ready recipients of this gift of the Christ-mind, that which is always at one with the Father, with Truth.
The world can never give us this true peace. It can offer us enticements of comfort and health and well-being and success. But these allurements never truly bring that peace that is of God, which meets our yearning hearts with a satisfied surrender to joy. This Truth of our oneness with the Life that is divine, the Love that knows us and never leaves us, is the peace that transcends anything the world, persons, material offerings, can bring to us.
So, let your heart willingly accept this peace, and don’t be afraid; for this Christly gift has already been given to us and it can’t be taken away. We know it already for it is our own deepest desire within. It is not something to arduously strive for, but everything that is natural to us. The frenzied mortal mind is not ours at all. We do have the Mind of Christ and the heart that is grateful, joyful, and at peace.
