These things I have spoken to you…

peace

Jesus used this phrase many times as He taught His disciples. Let’s take a look at several of them from John 13 through John 16.

Most assuredly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master; nor is he who is sent greater than he who sent him. John 13:16 NKJV

Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. John 14:12 NKJV

You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. John 15:3 NKJV

These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full. John 15:11 NKJV

These things I have spoken to you, that you should not be made to stumble. John 16:1 NKJV

But these things I have told you, that when the time comes, you may remember that I told you of them. John 16:4 NKJV

Most assuredly, I say to you that you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice; and you will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will be turned into joy. John 16:20 NKJV

Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you. John 16:23 NKJV

These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world. John 16:33 NKJV

We are His servants if we believe in Him. We are already clean because the word He spoke to us. His joy remains in us so our joy will be full. We will not stumble when we remember what He told us. Though we may sorrow at times, it will turn to joy in the end. We are to ask anything in Jesus’ name and God will give it to us. The result is peace.

How beautiful Jesus’ Words are! May you cherish them and let them dwell richly inside of you. God’s Word is a lamp to our feet and light to our path, so let’s stick to the path!

Jesus, thank you, for your love and guidance. Enable us to desire your word. We draw near to you this day. Please draw near to us. In your precious name we pray. Amen.
