“Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful” (John 14:27).

The remedy for troubled hearts is the assurance of His abiding presence. So much does Jesus want us to be comforted that He brackets this passage with the admonition to not be troubled (v.1, 27). Even in the context of death, as this passage is, the comfort He promises is another Helper like himself. He abides with us through the Spirit. Be comforted! No matter the circumstances, He is never absent.
