The peace of Christ is with us and is not subject to removal. Jesus reminds us in John 16 that though we will face hard times in life, we are to take heart because Jesus has overcome the world. His peace lives within us and is at our disposal at any moment. Adam Barnett sets the stage for the rest of our In Courage series by reestablishing and reaffirming this truth in our hearts.

John 16:33 NIV
I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.
The peace of Christ is not circumstantial or conditional, and it cannot be taken away from you.
