The Prince of Peace

He shall be called Prince of Peace.

(Isaiah 9:6 ESV)

We all long for peace – peace with God, others and ourselves. Lest we think we’re the only ones, let’s recap to 2,000 years ago when the Jews living under Roman rule prayed for the promised Deliverer Who would be called the Prince of Peace. When Jesus was born, the angels announced the arrival of this Prince:

“Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.
Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord…Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.”
(Luke 2:10-11, 13-14)

The Baby whose birth we’re celebrating is no other than the Prince of Peace. In a world where we’re still searching for what will bring us peace, we need to look no further: “You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger” (v.12). Our peace is found in Jesus. When we seek Him, we’ll find the greatest gift we could ever ask for – His Peace. Praying that this CHRISTmas, you will unwrap His gift of Peace to help you rise above the unrest.

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” – Jesus (John 14:27)
