John 14:27-31

Jesus' Gift of Peace

27 "Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Your heart must not be troubled or fearful.
28 You have heard Me tell you, 'I am going away and I am coming to you.' If you loved Me, you would have rejoiced that I am going to the Father, because the Father is greater than I.
29 I have told you now before it happens so that when it does happen you may believe.
30 I will not talk with you much longer, because the ruler of the world [a] is coming. He has no power over Me. [b]
31 On the contrary, [I am going away] [c] so that the world may know that I love the Father. Just as the Father commanded Me, so I do. "Get up; let's leave this place.
