11. Jesus is the Prince of Peace

SERIES: 31 REASONS TO CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS

Ephesians 2:14-18
For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity. And He came and preached peace to you who were afar off and to those who were near. For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father.

We celebrate Christmas because we celebrate Jesus

  • who Himself is our peace.
  • because He has reconciled us with God, making it possible for us to have access to the Father
  • because He has broken down the walls that separate us from each other, uniting us in Him

Thank you Lord Jesus for you are my peace and for the access you have wrought for me with the Father.
