Christ Came to Give Us Peace

Today is the third Sunday of Advent and the candle we are lighting is the light of peace. If you listen to the news at all, you know our world is lacking peace.

Not only is our world lacking peace, but many of our homes are lacking peace.

When things in my life would get difficult, my Mom would always remind me of John 14:27. Boy, I have quoted this verse over the last several years when the enemy tried to steal my peace.

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

Christ came to give us peace. If you have Christ today, nothing, absolutely nothing at all, can steal your peace.

Here are some more scripture verses that remind us to cling to peace.

  • “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7
  • “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
  • “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.” Isaiah 26:3
  • “When a man’s ways please the LORD, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.”Proverbs 16:7

When this world seems like it’s spinning out of control, Christ says I will give you peace.

I don’t know what you’re struggling with today, but Christ wants to give you peace! Peace in your heart, peace in your marriage, peace with your children, and peace in your home.

This is such a sweet song that reminds us that Jesus is what we are celebrating at Christmas.

Have a blessed and peaceful Sunday!
