Jno. 16, 33

I.

In the unregenerate heart there is the spirit of strife, opposition to God, rebellion, at war with God.  It leads to sinful deeds, hurtful words and acts.

There can be no peace where there is conscious wrong in the heart.

II.

But when we turn to Jesus, yielding our will to him, he takes away the strife of sin, frees us from it and gives us peace.

(a)  Peace toward God, till his holy purpose is a pleasure.

(b)  Peace toward men; we love them, wish them well and try to help them when they are in need of it.

(c)  Victory over the world even as he overcame.  We live a victorious life, one of happy communion with God through Christ.
