Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. - John 14:27Righteousness brings with it a promise of blessings such as joy, peace, and hope. These are mostly comfort blessings; they help life feel good and make us expect that life will continue to be good. But that train of thought is flawed. The peace which Christ offers us is not that everything will be okay in this life but that everything will perfect in the next life.
If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable. - 1 Corinthians 15:19Our hope in Christ is for eternal life, for becoming a joint-heir with Christ, and for a glorious resurrection.
