Pastor Jabin Chavez Sermon A Different Peace : John 14 vs 27 says “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”. when Jesus was about to be crucified killed and buried, the disciples were afraid. they expressed their fears in various way, violence, accusations, denial, they were afraid and so are we. the story of fear is as old as humanity, there are political fear, economic fears, health fears and many more.
Jesus taught the disciples of peace, he warned them that there were two types of peace, his kind of peace, the peace from his father, not the peace that the world gives but the peace apostle Paul describes as perfect peace. hence we have two types of peace the world’s peace or gods peace and Pastor Jabin Chavez teaches us how to receive the peace of God.
Peace is a gift from god and is only available in it fullness in the kingdom of heaven, peace is not achieved, it is received. part of our spiritual birth right is the peace our lord Jesus christ offered us by his cross.everything in our christian life is a gift to be received.
We do not earn anything in the kingdom of GOD. we know the presence of God by peace we know the presence of the devil by fear, the moment we feel fear or anxiety, we should be able to tell our selves that Jesus did not bring fear but peace and we must recognise that whenever we afraid the devil is working. we are in the world but not of the world, so when we are wrestling against fear, principality and powers we must remember that our weapons are divine through prayers.
