Peace I leave with you,
my peace I give unto you… Let not your heart
be troubled, neither let it be afraid—John
The more we overcome the
world, the flesh and the devil, the more we seek to do the will of
our Father who is in heaven, the more we seek for the fellowship and
communion of our dear Redeemer, the more we seek to do those things
which are pleasing in His sight, so much the more will we have of
the joy and peace which no man takes from us, and which trials,
difficulties and persecutions can only make the more sweet and
precious. “Ye now therefore have sorrow; but I will see you again,
and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you”
