For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6 NKJV.
Jesus is the Prince of Peace as Isaiah prophesied.
Jesus’ is a peacemaker who brought Jew and Gentile together as one. “For Christ himself has brought peace to us. He united Jews and Gentiles into one people when, in his own body on the cross, he broke down the wall of hostility that separated us.” Ephesians 2:14 NLT
Jesus brings peace with God to those who believe and receive Him as Savior. “Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,” Romans 5:1 KJV
“Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.” Matthew 5:9 KJV.
When we put on the Armor and wear the Shoes of Peace we are walking in the Spirit, with Jesus, and are bringing His gospel of peace to the world. For, “…all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;” 2 Corinthians 5:18 KJV.
Prayer: Dear God, thank you for the gift of salvation I have received through faith in Your Son, Jesus Christ, Prince of Peace, whose death on the cross has reconciled me to You and brought peace to me with other believers.
2 Corinthians 5:18 says that through this You have given me a ministry of reconciliation, meaning I should be wearing the Shoes of Christ’s Peace daily, walking in faith, and in the Spirit, and sharing the gospel of peace with all I meet. Please help me to remember to do this so I may fulfill the ministry you have given me to do. Thank You God. Amen.
Today: Thank God for sending us the Prince of Peace.
Wear the Shoes of the Gospel of Peace everywhere you go and Share the Good News of Christ’s Peace with everyone you meet.
For Jesus Himself said: “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” Mark 16:15 NKJV.
