As a veteran the word peace holds a special place in my heart. I know intimately that the peace we have is because others sacrificed their peace to protect us. This is exactly what God did for us. Luke 2:13-14 tells us, "And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying , Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men." (KJV)
He sent his only son to become a sacrifice and bring salvation to the world. This peace was coming for all who believe.
After Christ ascended the Holy Spirit brought that peace to all believers.
Philippians 4:7 says, "And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." (KJV)
So remember this season that the peace was bought and paid for by the sacrifice our lord made. I pray you cherish that peace beyond understanding. For if we embrace the peace of God, the devil has one less tool to distract us from our heavenly father and his plans for us.
