Sunday Devotional: 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.”  John 16:33

These words spoken by Jesus were to his disciples shortly before he was to be arrested and crucified.  They are words that are spoken to us as well.  It is so important to remember that in Christ, we have peace.  When we turn to Him and follow Him, we have peace even in the midst of trials and troubles.   We get that assurance because we know He has overcome the world and all the troubles and trials we could ever face.

This week, remember these words.  Remember peace is found through Jesus.  Remember in the midst of tribulation, we follow someone who has overcome all that and can help see us through.
