"Seek God: NOT Things! Session 10 Part 2 - B-1-3. 'The Source of Peace'”

II. Main Scriptures: Matthew 6:25-34; John 14:1,27; Philippians 4:6-7; 1 Peter 5:6-7:

B-1-3. “The Source of Peace” – Session 10 This is what John MacArthur also said, about the type of peace Jesus was referring to, in John 14:27, and who is the source of peace, in his teaching, “The Gift of Peace,” under the subtopic, “The Source of Peace”:

“Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful (John 14:27). The peace Jesus is speaking of enables believers to remain calm in the most wildly fearful circumstances. It enables them to hush a cry, still a riot, rejoice in pain and trial, and sing in the middle of suffering. This peace is never by circumstances, but instead affects and even overrules them.”

The “Source of Peace” according to John MacArthur:

“This subjective, experiential peace—the peace of God—has its foundation in the objective, factual peace—peace with God. The peace of God is not obtainable by those who are not at peace with Him. God alone brings peace. In fact, in Philippians 4:91 Thessalonians 5:23, and again in Hebrews 13:20, He is called "the God of peace." Jesus Christ is also seen as the One who gives peace. Jesus said, "My peace I give to you." Notice He says "My peace." Here is the key to the supernaturalness of this peace: it is His own personal peace. It is the same deep, rich peace that stilled His heart in the midst of mockers, haters, murderers, traitors, and everything else He faced. He had a calm about Him that was unnatural and nonhuman. In the midst of incomprehensible resistance and persecution, Jesus was calm and unfaltering; He was a rock.”

Rest in the fact that God is with you, for you, and NOT against you; God got YOU in the palm of His hand, and will NEVER let you go!!
