“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish this” (Isaiah 9.6-7 NIV).
One of Jesus’s main objectives in coming to the earth was not only to offer us salvation through His Finished Work on the Cross but to finally offer us true and lasting Peace.
How? We have been reconciled back to God through Jesus (Romans 5.10-11), and God is the Author of Peace: “For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints” (1 Corinthians 14.33 NKJV). God, as the Author of Peace, surrounds and fills us with His Perfect Peace as we learn to trust in Him and grow in intimacy with His presence. This Peace can’t be bought or received through any human or earthly means. It only comes through a relationship with God via the Cross.
“And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful” (Colossians 3.15 NLT).
