Welcome to Zion Church!
 
In our Gospel lesson for today (John 14:23-29), Jesus says, 'Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.' He says this to his disciples as he prepares to turn himself over to the Jewish authorities. He heads into his final trial with words of comfort for his friends, and for us. 
 
In John's Gospel, Jesus always confirms what he promises. The first words to his frightened disciples, meeting together on the night of his reported resurrection (if we assume that the disciples didn't believe Mary Magdalene), are, 'Peace be with you.' Then he shows them his hands (wounded), along with the wound in his side. After this, he repeats, 'Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.' 
 
He sends his disciples off to heal the wounds of others after showing them the results of giving himself over to death. It isn't possible for us to get our imagination around the immensity of what the disciples witnessed. The arrest, the trial, the flogging, the crucifixion, all encompassed within the serene presence of the risen Lord, quietly nudging them forward with the Peace which passes understanding: the love and presence of our resurrected Lord. The Easter promise rests within the truth of the resurrection: Peace lives within all the bad things that can possibly happen to us, even death. Just look at Jesus, and believe.
 
See you all on Sunday!
