GOD OFFERS PEACE

ISAIAH 9:7 (CEV)
His power will never end;
     peace will last forever.

ACTS 10:36 (CEV)
This is the same message that God gave to the people of Israel, when he sent Jesus Christ, the Lord of all, to offer peace to them.

SUMMARY SENTENCE
God offers unending peace.

PRAYER
King Jesus, thank you for initiating a kingdom defined by peace in our world. We desperately need that peace but we, including I, push against the very thing we desire. Forgive us for trying to define the terms of peace rather than accepting your radical new way of reconciliation. Capture our hearts and imaginations with the peace that you established through the cross so that we might live in peace forever. Amen.
