A daily devotional through the Bible speaking with God as Adam and Eve may have in the garden east of Eden. Our website http://alittlewalkwithgod.com
Jesus gave encouragement to those around Him as best He could so they could face the coming trial and perhaps better understand all the events that would happen in the three days that would transpire before they saw Him again. He wanted them to believe and perhaps these words of encouragement would get them through the grief until He could return to them. Then, of course, they would understand. And when His Spirit returned, they would have Him in them. They would really begin to comprehend all Jesus said to them and His words would open to them as never before.
Jesus wanted them to know the peace He enjoyed despite the coming trauma. Peace despite the accusations. Peace despite the coming crucifixion. Peace that the world will never enjoy. Peace that He leaves as a legacy to all His followers. Peace. The angels who heralded Jesus' birth said He would give peace to all people who pleased God. That is Jesus' legacy. Enjoy His peace.
