The Prince of Peace Christmas Gift

When you experience the peace of God, you can’t explain it, and you can never articulate it effectively because it’s something so powerful and miraculous, words can never do it justice. 

It is possible for you to have peace with God but not experience the peace of God. 

The starting point for peace on earth in your life starts with a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.  

There is a difference between peace with God and experiencing the peace of God. 

You need both and the starting point is accepting the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ into your life. 

This peace is something the world does not offer. Nobody has it nor can give it to you other than the Prince of Peace!

Christmas is all about the gift giver who came into our mess as a baby boy so we can have peace with God and experience the peace of God. 

Some of the gifts that Christians have and I emphasize that they are gifts, that no one else has are the peace of God and the gift of the Holy Spirit in us. 

The Holy Spirit is the source for our peace. It’s where we get our peace and that peace is always available through an abiding walk with Jesus that empowers the Holy Spirit to pour out that peace when we humble ourselves in full surrender to the Lordship and leadership of Jesus Christ. 

The more you do that the more peace you will have. The more you do that the more power of the Holy Spirit you will have. 

The more you do that, the less stress and anxiety you will have. 

Think about it. The Holy Spirit and God’s peace are two things the world can’t manufacture or produce. No religion can. 

Peace with God and the peace from God come from a relationship with Jesus Christ. 

Peace with God happens when we received the free gift of salvation and forgiveness by accepting what Jesus Christ has done for us on the cross. 

Nobody has peace with God if they are separated from God by their sins. Our Father who art in heaven sent His one and only Son to save us and make a way back to our Him so we could be reconciled and have an eternal relationship with Him never to be separated ever again. 

I hope you will join me later tonight as I live stream from our Encounter Facebook page a message on the “Prince of Peace Christmas Gift.”

The live stream will be at 7pm PST and 10pm EST.


Be Blessed and Encouraged
