John 14: 1, 27: “Let not your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also on Me … Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives, do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled.” Jesus had begun this, His third longest sermon, with a command He repeats here, twenty-seven verses later : ‘Let not your heart be troubled.’ There He tells us how to overcome a troubled heart: Belief in Him and God. Here in v. 27 He tells us why we need not be troubled in the first place: He’s given us His peace. As the disciples were about to see and learn, “Truly He has born our sorrow” (Isaiah 53: 4). If He’s carried it, why would we be troubled anymore?
