Jesus Is The Prince of Peace.

“Near my home is a spring that never varies its flow…Its flow is steady, reliable, and unending. Such is the peace we all yearn for – and such is the peace Jesus promises to all who trust in Him.” – Billy Graham (*quote, not Scripture)

“For a child is born to us, a Son is given to us. The government will rest on His shoulders. And He will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6) In contrast to Satan, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy,” Jesus comes to bring peace and comfort: “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” (John 10:10)

With all of the craziness in the various governments in the world today, what a comfort it truly is to know that God’s eternal kingdom will be a place where “He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying of pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” (Revelation 21:4) Governments vie for power – wars rage and evil often seems to triumph, but Jesus, our Prince of Peace, offer us hope: “I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)
