Different from the world
John 14:27 – “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”
I’m so thankful that Jesus thinks and acts differently to the world. I’m thankful that His patience doesn’t run out. That He loves deeper and forgives regardless. That He doesn’t get bored or restless. I’m thankful that He never forgets us or moves on. He is beyond faithful and endlessly gracious.
I’m grateful that His mercy never runs out – that it continually flows in, wave after wave.
The world may get tired and become corrupt, but He doesn’t. The world may wage war, commencing battle after battle, but Jesus always stands firm. There is no end to who He is, no limit to His power and no strength greater than Him. His peace is eternal.
He was and is and always will be different from our hurting and broken world, and oh, I’m so thankful for that.
