Prince of Peace

     Isaiah 9:6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. (ESV)

      In a world full of Chaos it's nice to know that there is peace to be found in Jesus. On the night He was born the angels proclaimed “Peace on earth....”

      Matthew Henry looks at the name in this way - He is the prince of peace. As a King, he preserves the peace, commands peace, nay, he creates peace, in his kingdom. He is our peace, and it is his peace that both keeps the hearts of his people and rules in them. He is not only a peaceable prince, and his reign peaceable, but he is the author and giver of all good, all that peace which is the present and future bliss of his subjects.

      Dear Lord, Thank you
  • For the peace we can have from the Prince of Peace.
