“… [O]n earth peace,” Luke 2:14b
One of the promises that the angels declared upon Jesus’ birth was peace on earth. It is apparent, however, that not everyone received peace at Jesus’ coming. Wars and cruelty have not ceased from the time of His birth. Today not all people, or even all Christians, have peace. Was the promise forgotten, spoken in error, or a lie?
Consider Isaiah 26:3 “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.”
Jesus’ peace is conditional on one’s relationship with Him.
“No Jesus, no peace. Know Jesus, know peace.”
May you have peace. -PB
