Jesus is announced as the arrival of “Peace on Earth.” In what ways did his coming bring peace, and in what ways did it disturb peace? Early in Scripture, the last line of the Aaronic blessing says, “May the Lord show you his favor, and give you his peace.” Numbers 6:26. Last week we talked about Joy, and Proverbs 12:20 ties them together. “Those who promote peace have joy.” How can we be peacemakers in our world so we can be blessed to be called God’s children? Today there are so many places that need peace. What will it mean to be a peacemaking follower of Jesus?
