John 16:33

John 16:33  (NIV)
33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

Jesus summed up all he had told them this night, with these words he told his disciples to take courage.  In sprite of the inevitable struggles they would face, they would not be alone.  Jesus does not abandon us to our struggles either.  If we remember that the ultimate victory has already been won, we can claim the peace of Christ in the most troublesome times. 

So we can also take courage knowing that what ever we face were never alone.  It may seem like it.  But we’re not!  Jesus is always with us.

If Jesus can overcome the world…. then my friends so can we.
