When I have a look around, there is not a lot to be seen of “peace on earth”. Various conflicts and social injustice fill the news. We do not have to look far to find hate and dispute.
We know both right from our environment. When Jesus was born 2000 years ago, the circumstances weren’t any better. So why was his birth announced with “peace on earth”?
Peace is not the absence of conflict or war but the presence of Jesus. Jesus brought heavenly peace into the world for us. Through him, we can have peace with God. That’s the best news that you can get as it is peace that gives eternal life!
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.Luke 2:14
