There are many things to be concerned about in our world and in our personal lives. Hardly a day goes by without another piece of news that threatens our peace. Is peace really possible? Is this just a Christmas card motto? Do we have our heads in the sand? What does a life of peace actually look like?
Israel was in desperate need of peace. The nation was unraveling on every level but these promises given to Isaiah for the people were much larger in scope than they imagined.
The apostles eventually understood that Isaiah's prophecies had two parts. The Prince of Peace would have two advents (arrivals). The first would be for those who wanted peace, the second would be to make peace.
The peace we need is more than tranquility. We need all things made right:
We need a Captain of Shalom!
The God of Peace wants us to have peace and be at peace. He is making us people of peace to live in a kingdom of peace. How can we not be at peace when we are children of the Prince of Peace?
