“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.” John 16:33 NIV
In John 16, Jesus prepares the disciples for His death and resurrection. They would be devastated on Friday and Saturday. How could this have happened? They were also afraid that they would be next. Then resurrection morning comes, and their sorrow turns to joy.
We, too, will suffer pain because of the evil in the world. Take heart, Jesus overcame the world, and with His help, we will also. There will be a resurrection morning for us too!
