Aug 19 – The Search for Peace on Earth

General Douglas MacArthur once said, “Men, since the beginning of time have sought peace.” And yet from the beginning of time, the world has seldom seen peace. Man’s fallen nature results in aggression, selfishness, and greed. There is only one answer to man’s personal sin problem. That is to know, accept, love and serve Jesus, the Prince of Peace. The prophet Isaiah, when prophesying the coming of the Savior, announced, “…unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given…and He will be called Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” But while nations will not bow to the Prince of Peace, you and I, as individuals can, and by doing so, experience true peace because of the promise, that when we invite Him into our lives, “…being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
