Luke 1:68-79 "Advent Peace"

In a season where the celebration of the holidays have taken precedence over the meaning and reason for their celebration, it is important for us to turn our attention to Christ, the Prince of peace. Today we explore some of the implications of the Peace of Christ in our lives.

1. Through Christ I have peace with God. I am forgiven (Romans 5).
2. Through Christ I am able to have peace with myself (Romans 8). I have not been given a spirit of fear (2 Timothy 1:7). “Let the Peace of Christ rule in your hearts…” Colossians 3:15
3. Through Christ I am called to show peace with others (Romans 12:18). We are bringers of Shalom.
