For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. -Isaiah 9:6 KJV
In this world of war, hatred and discord, is there a more nobler title than Prince of Peace? How many of us long and pray for world peace yet find it so hard to be at peace with other and sometimes with ourselves. The apostle Paul writes and tells us that there is a peace that passes understanding - an inner peace that brings a stillness when the storms are raging outside. This is the Messianic peace that only that baby in Bethlehem can bring. It is an inner stillness that only comes when we know that He is God. It is a peace that spills from our hearts and brings reconciliation to other hearts.
