The words – “Be of good cheer”- offers a basis of ‘HOPE’ for the sick.
Courage for the fearful and Peace for the perplexed.
Jesus used these words – “Be of good Cheer”.
1. When he healed a man who was paralyzed –
His friends had faith when they brought him to Jesus to be healed. Matthew 9:2.
2. When the Disciples found themselves in a fierce storm on the sea of Galilee.-
Jesus walking on the water -Calmed their fears. Matthew 14:27.
3. Jesus said that His true followers – will face persecution, even as He did. John ch 13-16
When conflicts arise; in sickness and sad times; and in times of feeling fearful –
We have this assurance that we too can have this PEACE.
“The PEACE of God which surpasses all understanding,
will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
