Sermon Summary

Jesus’ final teachings to His disciples before His death encapsulate His identity, purpose, and accomplishments. He stresses that peace is not merely granted, but requires belief and action, specifically through embracing doctrine and finding courage in adversity. Thus, the two crucial elements for achieving peace are comprehending and responding to doctrine.

1. No peace without doctrine

The doctrine of peace is crucial, particularly as it relates to Jesus’ purpose, as encapsulated in verse 28. The assertion of Jesus’ divinity is vital, and belief in this claim is paramount. Jesus’ willing sacrifice and advocacy before the Father, coupled with the Cross’s role in not just forgiving believers but also actively loving and respecting them, is a profound concept.

2. What to do with that doctrine

Believing in Jesus’ teachings is crucial for finding peace, with a deep grasp of Christian doctrine helping to alleviate worldly fears. It’s important to lean on God during hardships, find our identity in Christ, and draw strength from the Cross. Worldly issues pale in comparison to the profound riches found in the love of Jesus Christ.
