Luke 2: 13-14
13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,14 “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
The peace that the angels proclaimed was not peace between nations or peace between family members. The peace that the angels proclaimed was a more profound peace; a peace offered to us by God.
This peace is to be found through a relationship in Christ; a peace grounded in our faith. This kind of peace transcends our circumstances and the circumstances of the world. It is a peace that passes all understanding, and is offered to all who seek Him.
Into this world God’s peace was born. And the angels rejoiced.
May the love of Christ be with you,
Rev. Eric Lanier (Retired)
