Daily D – Luke 2:13-14
Suddenly, the angel was joined by a vast host of others—the armies of heaven—praising God and saying,
“Glory to God in the highest heaven,
And peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased.”
LUKE 2:13-14 (NLT)
God’s glory and our peace are connected.
The more we see him for who he is, the better we see ourselves for who we are.
The more we see him for who he is, the better we receive his grace.
The more we see him for who he is, the better we experience his peace.
Peace on earth is not a beauty contestant’s dream come true.
Peace on earth is not a political treaty enforced by armed peacekeepers.
Peace on earth is a united focus on the glory of God.
God’s glory is seen in his transcendence, his other-ness.
God’s glory is seen in his immanence, his with-us-ness.
Immanuel, God with us, Jesus, the Prince of Peace, makes peace not only possible but inevitable.
Know Jesus. Know Peace.
May yours be a Merry, and Peace-filled, Christmas.
I will experience God’s peace.
Our Father, we want your presence and your peace. These are your Christmas gifts. We joyfully receive them. Amen.

2 Samuel 18:18 During his lifetime Absalom had taken a pillar and erected it in the King’s Valley as a monument to himself, for he thought, “I have no son to carry on the memory of my name.” He named the pillar after himself, and it is called Absalom’s Monument to this day.
Psalm 55:6-8 I said, “Oh, that I had the wings of a dove! I would fly away and be at rest. I would flee far away and stay in the desert; I would hurry to my place of shelter, far from the tempest and storm.”
2 Samuel 11:2-5 One evening David got up from his bed and walked around on the roof of the palace. From the roof he saw a woman bathing. The woman was very beautiful, and David sent someone to find out about her. The man said, “She is Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam and the wife of Uriah the Hittite.” Then David sent messengers to get her. She came to him, and he slept with her. (Now she was purifying herself from her monthly uncleanness.) Then she went back home. The woman conceived and sent word to David, saying, “I am pregnant.”
