Christmas peace

Christmas peace—how do we feel it? It comes quietly, as the Christ, Truth, dawns in our hearts.

"Peace on earth." It makes a lovely greeting-card message. With Christmas approaching, who wouldn't love to feel this peace settle over our world, embracing and comforting all mankind? Perhaps at this season more than any other, the human heart yearns for the spiritual stillness and peace that the angels promised and that Christ Jesus so beautifully exemplified in his life.

True peace isn't so much a result of peaceful circumstances as an inner conviction of God's unerring control over all circumstances. Even in the midst of a raging storm or an angry crowd, Jesus maintained a calm, clear conviction of God's presence and sure control. Not only was his inner peace preserved in these situations but his certainty of this peace protected him from the threatening crowd and silenced the storm that endangered others as well as himself.
