Peace I Give Unto You

John 14-17 | June 5-11

Jesus told His disciples, “If ye love me, keep my commandments.” (John 14:15) Jesus told them He would soon be leaving them, but He promised that would send them the Comforter, or the Holy Ghost to comfort them and testify of truth. Jesus taught them how to have peace, even though they would experience persecution because of their beliefs. He encouraged them to be of good cheer.

Jesus would soon go to the Garden of Gethsemene to pray for His Apostles and all the Saints, and take upon Himself the pains and sins of the world. His sacrifice would satisfy the demands of justice, so that if we repent, we can be forgiven. Through His Atonement, Jesus overcame the world, redeemed us from sin, and experienced our pains so that He could bring us peace.

As we strive to keep the commandments and remember His life, sacrifice, and example, we can have His spirit with us and we will be able to feel His love, even in difficult times, and find peace.

John 16:33

“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer: I have overcome the world.”


  • How is Jesus’s peace different than the peace of the world?
  • How does the Holy Ghost bring us comfort?
  • Why is it important to keep the commandments?
  • How does the Atonement bring us peace and good cheer?


“Because the Savior, through His infinite Atonement, redeemed each of us from weakness, mistakes, and sin, and because He experienced every pain, worry, and burden you have ever had, then as you truly repent and seek His help, you can rise above this present precarious world. You can overcome the spiritually and emotionally exhausting plagues of the world, including arrogance, pride, anger, immorality, hatred, greed, jealousy, and fear. Despite the distractions and distortions that swirl around us, you can find true rest—meaning relief and peace—even amid your most vexing problems.”

Russell M. Nelson
