Advent Devotional: Thursday, December 20

For he is our peace... and came and preached peace to you who were afar off, and to those who were near. (Ephesians 2:14, 17)

Jesus is the Prince of Peace, and His message is that we can have peace with God through Him. The world has become overloaded with anxieties, cares and fears. Only Jesus can give us the "peace which passes understanding" in the midst of the storms of life. How important it is to remember His compassion for lost people, whom He viewed as sheep without a shepherd, standing in need of His comfort.

Jesus, let people see Your peace in our hearts and may it cause them to wonder at the work of God within us.
