PEACE: THE FRUIT OF LOVE

UNDAILY Episode 121


Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. “You heard me say, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I. I have told you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe. I will not say much more to you, for the prince of this world is coming. He has no hold over me, but he comes so that the world may learn that I love the Father and do exactly what my Father has commanded me. 

JOHN 14, 27-31 (NIV)


News services everywhere report on conflicts and unrest. In this context, the words from the Gospel according to Saint John seem like a ray of light piercing the darkness: "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you." The peace offered by Jesus is incomparable to the peace proposed by the world today. Worldly peace is often temporary, contingent on external circumstances, frequently fragile, and bought at the price of injustice. In contrast, Christ's peace is eternal, unchanging, and independent of the whims of the world's "great" powers.
