Intro

Announce subject
He’s having a discussion w His disciples about His departure. “What?!?! You’re about to leave??!!!!”
They’ve seen Him do the public stuff and the private stuff. He begins preparing them for what this will look like
First major introduction is HS and now vs. 27
John 14:27 NKJV
27 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, neither let it be afraid.
My recent way to focus your mind...What is peace?
I like to say “it’s when the books have been reconciled.”
feeling that comes after i’ve given blood; left a doctor’s office
gotten results back on a matter that are favorable
done my best
It’s been described as feeling like something.
It is something.

peace; prosperity, success; welfare, state of health; friendliness; deliverance

Am I alone or does it seem like I’m missing some essential elements???
Wait, eirene is the Greek word. It was brought over from a more popular word “shaloam” in Hebrew.

FAVOUR, PROSPEROUS; NEB also SAFETY, FAREWELL, WELFARE, WELCOME, PROSPER (ITY), UNHARMED, GREETINGS, GOOD NEWS, SOUND, HARMONY

Confession: I had to step back and look at it, I don’t have all of what I’ve been promised.
Prosperity: It’s not financial. “ease, rest, security”
WARNING: Don’t get being obedient mixed up with peace.
ex. First of the month - give the tithe - I have no peace putting . Your peace comes when you can stand on the promise.
Peace is “an inner witness is not a feeling or your own thoughts. It is the ability to eliminate the voices in the world and only hear God, either through His written Word or the inward witness. These are two different things, but they never contradict each other. They’re both a vital part of our walk with God.” - Kenneth Copeland

Peace is Substantive

John 14:27 NKJV
27 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, neither let it be afraid.
john 14:27
Ill: I was already coming down off some stuff. I was 4 days of disconnect. Coming home - stewardess grabs me and moves me. Alecia “I don’t know why you bring out the confrontation in people.”
How can i get this?
Know He has it
Tap into it.
You typically don’t look for what you don’t need.

ILLUSTRATION - Kevin Hart

Peace Has is NO Substitute

I’ll tell you what was wrong: I didn’t have enough peace in my walls…friendliness, favor, welcoming-ness, good news, harmony, greeting, well-being, friendliness, health.

Peace is There is NO Substitute

Joy isn’t peace
John 14:27 NKJV
27 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, neither let it be afraid.
jn 14.27

Peace is a State

blessing of peace n. — a state of peace that is a blessing or favor from God.

When the state shows up, everything around changes.
Mark 4:37–39 NKJV
37 And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. 38 But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?” 39 Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.
Mark 4:37-39
When you have it, what’s out of order around you, gets in order
ps 122:6-
Psalm 122:6–9 NKJV
6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May they prosper who love you. 7 Peace be within your walls, Prosperity within your palaces.” 8 For the sake of my brethren and companions, I will now say, “Peace be within you.” 9 Because of the house of the Lord our God I will seek your good.
If it’s not within you, it won’t be around you.
Ill: I was already coming down off some stuff. I was 4 days of disconnect. Coming home - stewardess grabs me and moves me. Alecia “I don’t know why you bring out the confrontation in people.”
I’ll tell you what was wrong: I didn’t have enough peace in my walls…friendliness, favor, welcoming-ness, good news, harmony, greeting, well-being, friendliness, health.
Romans 8:6 NKJV
6 For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
Romans 8:16 NKJV
16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,

ex. First of the month - give the tithe - I have no peace putting . Your peace comes when you can stand on the promise.
