The Light Radiates Peace

Bible Text: John 1:1–18; Isaiah 9:2–7 |

Love. Joy. Peace. Hope. When you have the Light, Jesus, these sought-after gifts radiate into and out from your life. I’ve never met anyone who didn’t want these four things in his/her life. But most people go about seeking them in the wrong places. In our Christmas series, Post Tenebras, Lux, we have two of those four messages behind us now. As we race toward Christmas, we now turn our attention to the matter of peace. After the darkness of turmoil, conflict, discord, unsettledness, estrangement, there’s LIGHT!

As we get into the Word, we will go back to a prophecy given some 600 years prior to the coming of Jesus, (Isaiah 9:2-7) to see that he, among other amazing things, is “the Prince of Peace”. We’ll look at how Jesus makes it possible for every one of us to be at peace with God, at peace with others and at peace with ourselves. Having that kind of all-encompassing peace is so elusive given the challenges we face in our lives and the pressure put on us by the culture. Life is filled with conflict, so how can we possibly experience, “The peace of God, which surpasses all understanding” (Philippians 4:7)? I’m eager to show you how from God’s Word.
