Peace. Aren't we all searching for peace? We can never seem to find it. Oh sure we find fleeting peace at the cabin by the lake; we can immerse ourselves in a book or a movie or we can gather with loved ones. But soon that fleeting moment of peace passes and it's back to work, back to stress, back to the chaos and sadness of our world, and we're left with an unsettled heart, longing for something.
True peace isn't just the absence of war or trouble. Peace is something bigger. It is safety, wholeness, well-being. It's not just calm in the storm; it's ultimately an end to all of the storms. It's joy and restoration. It is the delight and wonder of a world greater than our imagination. Peace is everything the way it was meant to be by the One who made it all.
That is True Peace. It sounds wonderful, doesn't it? But where can we find it?!
It turns out True Peace finds us. You see, this Peace has a name: Jesus. This Peace came to earth. This True Peace will last beyond every storm of life and brings true wholeness. Christ came to this world to give you Peace, His Peace. Come join us this Christmas to hear about True Peace on Earth, and the Peace of Jesus will find you.
