The second Sunday of advent, the candle of peace is lit. Today consider how Christ is the Prince of Peace, and how all real peace originates and is maintained within Him, through His nature and ability.
The angels proclaimed “Peace on earth!” because the avenue of peace had been opened, the one who would bring peace, first to our hearts, and then to our world had arrived. This one is Jesus Christ and no other. Until we surrender to Him, we neither know peace, nor can give peace.
Let the peace that passes understanding keep your heart today as you worship the Christ, Our Lord Jesus.
