They Shall Dwell Secure

Bible Text: Micah 5:1–5a |

When you stop to think about it, there are a ton of Christmas themes and traditions, both secular and sacred, that people latch onto during the holiday. The songs we sing, decorations we put up, and stories we tell reflect so many different customs and ideas about Christmas. But one theme that stands out for everyone, whether Christian or not, is that of peace. It resonates because we all live in a world that is so often devoid of peace.

Once again, we find ourselves in the midst of another Christmas season. As we get God’s Word open over the next two Sundays, we will look to the Old Testament prophet Micah’s oracles for some insights into the Nativity and life today. Micah prophesied about the coming of the infant king hundreds of years prior to his birth in Bethlehem.

In Micah 5:1-5a, we hear the declaration that we all need, “He shall be their peace.” For those in trouble and turmoil, angst and anguish, Jesus arrived to bring much-needed peace.
