Monday Devotional

Jesus is the Prince of Peace.  Read Isaiah 9:6-7. We all have strong convictions and false assumptions.  I’m trying to not let my strong convictions get in the way of listening to the strong convictions of others.  I’m trying to discover my false assumptions so that I can correct my thinking.  Let us seek to live in peace by seeking truth together, listening to one another, and extending grace when we disagree.  Pictured is an entrance to a church in Bethlehem, the birth place of Jesus, the Prince of Peace.  The prophet Isaiah declared “Immanuel” which means “God is with us.”  God came to be with us as Jesus.  Jesus came to bring peace on earth.  As a disciple of Jesus, we are to be messengers of peace to the earth. Dear God, let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.  Amen.
