Jesus’ Last Will & Testament

Sunday at TDF is the beginning of our Christmas series of sermons, Alpha & Omega, on the first and second comings of Christ.  My message for this coming Sunday refers to John 14:27, when Jesus told the disciples in the Upper Room:  “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give unto you.  Not as the world gives, give I unto you.  Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.”

In that text, Jesus was bestowing on us His legacy.  He was leaving us something in His last will and testament.
 
Dr. A. B. Simpson said:  “So precious indeed is peace that it was the one legacy left us by our departing Lord.  ‘Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you…’”

Think of it like this.  When He died, Jesus left his garments to the soldiers, His money to Judas, His mother to the apostle John, His blood to the earth, His body to the tomb.  But He consigned His peace to us.  It’s our privilege to have the Prince of Peace ruling and reigning in our hearts.

So join us Sunday at 8:45 and 10:15 as we talk about this more.
