Today begins the second week of Advent reminders. One tradition holds that the theme of this week is peace. What better prophetic text for peace that this familiar and great promise of God?

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah‬ ‭9:6‬ ‭ESV‬‬)

The eternal Son of God would come to bring peace between God and his people. The Apostle Paul gives a clear explanation of this in Romans 5:1-11.

Thanks be to God for his work on our behalf to bring us peace! May we lift up the name of Jesus, the Prince of Peace!
