Prince of Heaven – Devotional
All of eternity hinges on the answer to this question – how does sinful humanity regain peace with a holy God? God made a way back to peace with Him through Jesus, and the church has been called to announce that peace to a world of chaos. This announcement is the essence of the Christian mission and the greatest news ever told. We still divide history by His story.
God didn’t make a way of peace through a ruler, power, influence, wealth, or charm. He chose to do it through the weakest of creatures – a baby born to an engaged teenager and placed in a feeding trough for cattle.
Angel choirs announced the birth of this child wrapped in cloths with the news that He was the Savior, Messiah and Lord. How should we respond to this scandalous way of peace? Recognize the long-promised Jesus as the One who sets us free, forgives our sins, comforts our fears and gives us rest. Ask for His mercy, rest in the eternal love He offers and cry out that He is the Prince of Heaven, the Hope of the world, forever worthy of our worship. That is peace with God!
