Kids Korner: A New Kind of Peace (May 22nd)

Read John 14:23-29 with your family.

We experience God in three relationships: one with God as a parent or creator, one with God in human form as Jesus, and one with God as the Holy Spirit flowing around us and into our hearts. Jesus was trying to explain that to his followers that long ago night before he was put on trial.

Jesus told them it would all make sense after he died and was resurrected… or at least they would recognize what he was telling them. All the disciples were confused, and needed to hear that love was how they would recognize Jesus always with them. When we share the love of Jesus, we know God is always with us too, and we have a new kind of happiness – the peace Jesus promised that was better than anything the governments of the world thought about as ‘peace’.
