Peace for Christmas

“And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

(Phil. 4:7)

When you watch movies about Christmas, you almost get the idea that there is something magical about it, but sadly, this really isn’t true.  In fact, this attitude results in quite a bit of disappointment and sadness.

There is no magic about Christmas as a date on the calendar.  But there is great power in the One whose birth we celebrate.  It could be that most people just behave better at this time, once the shopping, preparation and craziness is over and they can sit back and relax.  Maybe for some, their humanity is more visible; the truth is, I don’t know.

Here is what I do know: Peace comes from relationship with Jesus Christ, and we celebrate His birth at Christmas.  If you desire peace in your very soul, you must develop your relationship with Him, for peace comes not from without, but from within.  Seek Him, cherish your time with Him, and live for Him; peace from deep within will be your reward.
