My Reflection for Tuesday May 20, Fifth Week of Easter; John 14:27-31a

Gospel: John 14:27-31a
(Jesus said to his disciples) “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid. You heard me tell you, ‘I am going away and I will come back to you.’ If you loved me, you would rejoice that I am going to the Father; for the Father is greater than I. And now I have told you this before it happens, so that when it happens you may believe. I will no longer speak much with you, for the ruler of the world is coming. He has no power over me, but the world must know that I love the Father and that I do just as the Father has commanded me.”

Reflection:
What is this peace that Jesus mentions to us in the gospel? It’s the peace that no one in this world could ever give us. We cannot find this peace with worldly power or riches. Because the more worldly power and riches we have the more that we’ll have no peace in our heart.

Many of us think that we will have peace by having power and wealth that’s why we aspire for it! We don’t even care if we sin as long as we could have this corrupted wealth and power. But we must be wary for the reason that the devil has always a concession for us to have immoral wealth and power and the concession is sin.  And by accepting the offer of the devil we are permanently under the devil’s devious spell until we die and we end-up in hell.

On the contrary, Jesus offers us His peace. Peace that no amount of worldly power and wealth could measure-up.  Peace that will keep us permanently away from sin and peace that will plant contentment in our hearts. Therefore we must embrace this peace that Jesus offers us.

Do you already have the peace of Jesus in your heart?
