Prince Of Peace

December 11, 2013


SCRIPTURE

And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9:6, NKJV

QUOTES

God, you have made us for yourself, and our hearts are restless till they find their rest in you.

~Augustine

God cannot give us peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.

~C.S. Lewis

COMMENTARY

Some think of peace as the absence of war but true peace is to be reconciled to God the Father through the blood of Jesus the Son. The miracle of this reconciliation is expressed in the model prayer, “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” It is expressed in Mary’s response the Gabriel’s message, “I am the hand maiden of the LORD. Be it unto me, according to His word.” As long as self is enthroned, peace will allude us. Surrender your will to His. Lose your self in Him. Jesus Christ is the prince of peace.

EXTRA

Good news out of Birmingham, Dana has been making progress daily. I am hoping to get down today or tomorrow. I also have a friend in the Baptist Hospital in Jackson, Mississippi with similar problems and he too is recovering. The LORD is good. Mylee Reese was cleaning my study when I was working on the blog last night and she picked out this picture. Sorry, I got up this morning and started reading and forgot the blog. Just a matter of time before this would happen.

G day and little girls Christmas
