Prince of Peace



Peace is a beautiful gift that anyone could ask for. And we know that Peace is something that we can not attain on our own. We need a Savior. We need a Counselor. We need a Prince of Peace.


The Spirit of understanding and counsel rested in Jesus. Through his life and ministry, we can see his great love and compassion for everyone around him, not just the ones that liked him. We see the Prince of Peace remaining silent when they were accusing him, asking his Father to forgive those who were crucifying him.


“For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us, And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace” Isaiah 9:6


The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him; the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of might, the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord” Isaiah 11:2

Our Prince of Peace gave us the perfect example of this, and now we have the choice of being too, peacemakers.


Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.” Matthew 5:9


If we truly want peace in our family, we need to do everything it takes to get there. We receive God´s peace in our hearts, through Jesus, but we should also follow his example and live in peace with everyone around us. This is how we show that we are children of God; by loving him, and loving his children.


“Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you.”

2 Corinthians 13:11


Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness, no one will see the Lord.” Hebrews 12:14


We must also prepare the way for the Lord, we must make straight paths for him. And we can only do this by repenting from our sins and forgiving those who have sinned against us. This will lead us to God´s peace. And this is also, God´s will for us and our families.


In those days John the Baptist came, preaching in the wilderness of Judea and saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.” This is he who was spoken of through the prophet Isaiah: “A voice of one calling in the wilderness, ‘Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.’” Matthew 3:1-3


Repent, and forgive. We will not find God´s peace unless we do these two things first. As we await for Jesus to come back, we must be kept blameless.


“May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Thessalonians 5:23


In a broken world full of fear, darkness, sadness, and grief, we must take a shield for our hearts and minds.


“You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.” Isaiah 26:3


God promised to bless and strengthen his people with peace. Jesus is our Wonderful Counselor, eager to guide us from darkness into his light.


“The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace.” Psalms 29:11


Jesus encouraged us to not be afraid because he left his peace with us.


Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:27


Then Paul reminds us that God´s peace is what guards our hearts and minds. So, through prayer, we can ask God to fill our hearts with his unending peace, and leave it as a strong shield against every darkness.


“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7


Always remember... the Prince of Peace, Immanuel, is with us till the end.
