And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Colossians 3:15
“Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.” Luke 2:14
At Christian Unity Ministries, we spend all our resources (material, creative, spiritual) pursuing peace in the midst of God’s people. We are actually pretty good at it, if I may say so myself. But make no mistake, real peace is not (and never will be) a product of human achievement. Our best efforts alone will never produce meaningful relationships, i.e., genuine community. Only the Spirit of God can do that. His presence…His peace. It is what separates the church from any other organization or group of people the world has ever known.
So, for us, Christmas is a celebration of the only real peace coming into our world. Peace which surpasses all our understanding. Peace which transcends all our differences. The Spirit of Peace incarnate, the Prince of Peace, born this day in the city of David.
