Peace on Earth
With Christmas nearly here we are given the reminder to find peace in the craziness of life and yet still required to partake in the craziness…just find a little peace. When the Bible speaks of Jesus bringing peace to all mankind or being the Prince of Peace, just what is it referring to?
Specifically the prophets spoke of one that would bring peace to the nations. Micah speaks of him bring peace with our enemies, but more than that he speaks of a much deeper peace:
He will stand and shepherd his flock
in the strength of the Lord,
in the majesty of the name of the Lord his God.
And they will live securely, for then his greatness
will reach to the ends of the earth.
And he will be our peace
when the Assyrians invade our land
and march through our fortresses.
This is Sunday we will talk about the peace that Jesus brings and how it can not only change our lives but how it changed the very direction of the world.
