For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
What does it mean that Jesus, as the Promised Messiah, is the Prince of Peace? This weekend we explored what that peace is and what that peace is not, as well as three specific ways in which Jesus brings the peace of God into our world and our lives.
“And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6b)
Messiah as the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6)
Jesus as the Messiah Who Brings Another Kind of Peace (Luke 2:14; Matthew 10:34; John 14:27)
The Peace Jesus Brings with God (Romans 5:1)
The Peace Jesus Brings with Ourselves (Matthew 11:28-30)
The Peace Jesus Brings with Others (Ephesians 2:14-18)
