My teenage son asks why I watch the news. He says that all it ever does is tell what people died in a horrible way, and most days he is right. The top stories are almost always about, murder, war, and terrorism. Those are not the most happy type of stories that most want to hear.
In a world that is falling apart, what do you cling to? During the Christmas season we are often reminded of what Isaiah said the savoir will be. Listen to what Isaiah 9:6 says; For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called:
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
My favorite name given in that verse is Prince of Peace.
In a world that looks like it is falling apart and is filled with chaos it helps to know peace. The only place we find peace in our lives is only in Jesus Christ. In the midst of personal conflict Jesus offers peace. I can have peace no matter what craziness is around me because of who Jesus is. He is peace.
The only chance you, I, or the world will ever have at peace will only happen when we know the Prince of Peace.
This Christmas make sure that you take some time to know the Prince of Peace before the craziness kicks in.
