When reading through Scripture, I’ve always been captivated by the many names, titles, and references to Jesus.
‘The Way, the Truth, and the Life’
‘The Alpha and the Omega’
‘Ancient of Days’
‘Author of Salvation’
‘Beginning and the End’
‘First and Last’
‘Tree of Life’
‘Lord of All’
‘Light of the World’
The list goes on and on. There are literally hundreds of names and titles given to Jesus.
My personal all time favorite though, is ‘Prince of Peace’.
With all the tumult and unrest going on in the world right now, it’s comforting to know that our Savior is the Prince of Peace.
It’s also comforting to know that peace is something that flows from Him, through us…if we are open to the challenge.
Unless you are Jesus, the Son of God, a single person can’t change the whole world.
But we can each do our part to promote peace! All we need to do is radiate it in the small, everyday situations of life. It might not be easy, but it can really make a difference.
A friend of mine shared a picture with me that effectively summed up that difference:
It’s important in this world. It’s also attainable if we follow the example of Jesus, who truly is, was, and always will be our Prince of Peace.
