Jan 27 – Nobel Peace Prize

Alfred Nobel was a Swedish chemist, inventor, engineer, entrepreneur, business man, author and pacifist. .He was the inventor of dynamite, from which he made a vast fortune. Born on October 21, 1833, in Stockholm, Sweden, Nobel left 31 million dollars (265 million in today’s money) to fund prizes for achievements in physics, chemistry, medicine, literature, and the Nobel Peace Prize for work in peace. God’s expression of peace to the world was the giving not of money, but His Son. The Bible speaks of two kinds of peace- first- “Peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” is ours place when we enter into a personal relationship with God through faith in Christ. Then after we have peace with God,” we receive “the peace of God …” But remember please, we only have the peace of God when we have made peace with God.
