There’s no time like Christmas to awaken a bit of stress!
Whether its’ putting up the tree, hanging the lights, getting the right present delivered in time or just making sure you’re keeping all the family happy (who’s bubble are you in?), peace can feel a long way off at Christmas.
The good news, in fact the great news, the REAL Christmas story, is all about Jesus, the Prince of Peace, coming into a world of stress and chaos. Bethlehem was under siege, Mary and Joseph were a walking scandal, there’s no room in the city – yet peace still came in the person of Jesus.
John 14:27 ‘Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you’.
Jesus is peace, and He gifts us HIS peace.
Like Hope, Joy and Love, this advent season, Jesus gives of Himself so that we can know peace when life circumstances mean we shouldn’t know peace, ‘where meek souls will receive Him still, the dear Christ enters in’.
Have a Happy, Loving, Hopeful, Joyful and Peaceful Christmas.
Where could I invite the Prince of Peace to enter into in my life this Christmas?
