True Peace Because A Child Was Born

“He is the Prince who has procured that peace. He procured it by removing the handwriting of ordinanaces that was against us and nailing it to His cross. He has satisfired the claims of absolute justice so that God in perfect justice can declare that the sinner stands in a right relationship with Himself. Being at peace with the sinner, God could pardon that sinner, and give to him the peace which is a divine gift. From the peace of God which passeth all understanding there flow the blessings which find their origin in such a peace. When the peace of God is in the human heart, then there will be manifest in the world peace among men. True peace comes to us because a Child was born. That Child, and He alone, is the Prince of Peace. Would we have peace, it is to Him that we must go. ….A Child is born and that Child is Jesus. He is the true King and Shepherd of Israel and in Him alone is to be found the peace that mankind needs.” –Edward J. Young

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
