3 Scriptures about Peace to Inspire Your Christmas

This is the season for peace – Christmas time. We sing, “Peace on Earth, good will toward men.” We hear those words and think, “Yes, stop the conflict. Stop the wars. Everybody just get along.” So, as we pray for peace this holiday season, below are some Scriptures that offer hope and encouragement.

The Prince of Peace:

* Isaiah 9:6-7 *

6 For to us a child is born,

to us a son is given;

and the government shall be upon his shoulder,

and his name shall be called

Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,

Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

7 Of the increase of his government and of peace

there will be no end,

on the throne of David and over his kingdom,

to establish it and to uphold it

with justice and with righteousness

from this time forth and forevermore.

The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.

Glory to God:

* Luke 2:13-15 *

13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,

14 “Glory to God in the highest,

and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”

15 When the angels went away from them into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go over to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has made known to us.”

The Way of Peace:

* Luke 1:76-79 *

76 And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Most High;

for you will go before the Lord to prepare his ways,

77 to give knowledge of salvation to his people

in the forgiveness of their sins,

78 because of the tender mercy of our God,

whereby the sunrise shall visit us from on high

79 to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death,

to guide our feet into the way of peace.”
