Peace On Earth - A HUGE Promise!

Imagine it - No war, no fighting, no squabbling.  Peace - Peace on Earth!  Peace is not just the absence of conflict it is a contentedness that begins in the heart…the soul even.  When the host of heavenly messengers exclaimed this great promise it carried with it a hope that we need on this Christmas Eve!

[10] And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. [11] For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. [12] And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” [13] And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, [14] “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!” [15] When the angels went away from them into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go over to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has made known to us.” (Luke 2:10-15 ESV)

Peace can be had through Christ.  This HUGE promise is available and not just at Christmas time.  Do you want peace in your home, your marriage, your heart?  It all begins with peace with God.  How can one gain this peace promised by the heavenly multitude that day?  Here it is: 'Romans 5:1 - Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.'

Once you seek out peace with God through Jesus you can begin to experience peace with God in every area of your life.  It is my Christmas Prayer for you that ‘The peace of God, which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. - Philippians 4:7’

Here is a wonderful illustration of our world situation of peace-less-ness with a promise of where to find it…enjoy:
