PEACE ON EARTH ?
As I sat in church today listening to the words that the angels first announced,
“PEACE ON EARTH, GOOD WILL TO MEN!”
it struck me….
When exactly is this peace on earth going to happen?
….it seems like a really long time from now seeing how much violence is in the world.
A gentle thought made it’s way to the front of my mind…
“The peace this is talking about is the Lord Jesus Himself….
that is why I gave Him the names Prince of Peace and Immanuel (God with us).”
He (peace) has come and He is with us moment by moment.
Re-translating the original message we could say,
“Jesus, our peace, is with us here on earth (now)….
and this is for all people’s highest good!”
That’s still the message from the throne of God to us in our great neediness.
If we see this as good news,
let’s respond as the shepherds did and go quickly to the Lord Jesus to worship
and be with Him!
A very wonder-filled Christmas to you and your family!
