Take Heart: A note from Pastor Tom

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.” John 14:27 In times of turmoil, Jesus tells us that we have no need to fear. He has given us peace. And not the kind of peace that the world offers—which is based on our moment-to-moment circumstances—but a real and enduring sense of peace. And it’s not that Jesus denies that difficult and painful things will happen to us and around us. He’s not unaware of the legitimate fears we have. It’s just that those things have no power over us. Here’s what he says later during that same meal with his disciples. “I have said these things to you,

that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 We will experience troubles. But we are overcomers. So we don’t shrink back in fear. And we don’t panic, even when a dangerous illness spreads throughout the world. - Pastor Tom
