Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful. Colossians 3:15
Peace, how can we have peace in a chaotic and sinful world? How can we have peace will all the pain and suffering, all the violence and wars? Its simple, let Christ rule your heart! Sounds like a simple solution, so why doesn’t anyone do it? Why doesn’t anyone submit to Jesus and let the peace which is beyond human comprehension rule their hearts?
For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6
One of Jesus many titles is Prince of Peace, many reject Jesus because they will say “I don’t see world peace, therefor he is not the Messiah” The Peace needs to be inside Your heart! You cant control the world but you can control yourself. Live in peace knowing your separation from God has been reconciled. Through Christ you can be a Child of God!
Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.” Luke 2:14
When the Angels declared the birth of the Messiah Jesus, they told the shepherds now there is Peace on Earth. Why? Because until this point, there was no way to the Father. There was a Great Veil that separated Us from God because of our sins.
But on this day, Jesus provided a way to bring God and his people back together. Jesus provided a way to bring us salvation which it the Good News (Gospel).
So this Christmas, let Christ rule your heart, accept the greatest gift ever given which is Jesus Christ Amen!
