Nobel Peace Prize is the hottest topic on Facebook and Twitter today and if you
don’t know why, I’m not telling you!
However, it did get me thinking.
This coveted award is granted to people who promote peace and make an unprecedented
and undeniable impact in our world.
This month as I teach about sin and the fall of man I am reminded that
sin not only damaged our standing with God; it destroyed it. Sin is not simply a problem that needs
solving; it is death that must be overcome. In a radical move of pure love and complete justice Jesus
took our place and bridged the gap. His death paid the penalty our sin and broke the power of
death. He achieved what no man
could ever do – he restored peace between God and man. There is no “prize” this world can
devise that matches the work of Jesus.
He is THE Prince of Peace, He alone could create eternal peace. Yes, today is a good day to celebrate
peace…I hope you have found it.
hope this makes sense. AS
