Daily D – Luke 2:13-14

by | Dec 25, 2020 | Daily D | 0 comments

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.

1 Chronicles 22:9-13 But you will have a son who will be a man of peace and rest, and I will give him rest from all his enemies on every side. His name will be Solomon, and I will grant Israel peace and quiet during his reign. He is the one who will build a house for my Name. He will be my son, and I will be his father. And I will establish the throne of his kingdom over Israel forever.’ “Now, my son, the Lord be with you, and may you have success and build the house of the Lord your God, as he said you would. May the Lord give you discretion and understanding when he puts you in command over Israel, so that you may keep the law of the Lord your God. Then you will have success if you are careful to observe the decrees and laws that the Lord gave Moses for Israel. Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged.”
