“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace. Good will toward men.” Luke 2:14
Why isn’t there any peace on earth?
God made a perfect, peaceful world. He created man and woman and put them in an impeccable home. He gave them a free will to choose to obey or not. But Adam and Eve disobeyed God in the Garden of Eden, so Satan took over. Man was then born in sin.
Peace on earth begins with one person. Peace starts with each one of us having God’s peace in us. The Lord is peace, the author of peace and the giver of peace. He came to give us peace.
Ask Christ to forgive you of your sins. Then invite Him, the Peace Child, the Lord of Peace, to come and live in you. As His peace rules your heart and life, it will flow out to others around the world. One day with Christ there will be peace on earth.
“Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always in every way. The Lord be with you all.” II Thessalonians 3:16
