Harold Willis continued his Series of Sermons about the great words of Christmasduring the December 17th Morning Worship hour focusing on the word Peace with thesermon title and text being "On Earth, Peace" (Luke 2: 4- 14.) The angel's announce- mentincluded God's offer of peace..Peace comes through knowing Jesus Christ, the Prince ofPeace. Intro: One of the most significant words of Christmas is "peace." Isaiah called the Messiah the "Prince of Peace." The hearts of people everywhere hunger for peace. Many pray for peace. Some have wondered when Jesus Christ will bring peace." Most have concluded that peace will come only at the return of Christ, although He offered it 2000 yrs. ago. Some have sur- mised that Jesus is a failure as a peace-bringer. To take this- position is to misunderstand the nature of true peace and the character of the peace that He brings to the human heart. (The kind of peace many people think about is like tha- trecorded on a tombstone by widow, "May he rest in peace, until we meet again." I. The peace of a clean heart. A. The Lamb of God takes away our sin. (Jn.l:29.) His sinless life and sacrifi- cial death paid our penalty and redeems us to God. (Gen. 3:15; Ro.5:18-19.) B. The Lord of Life offers forgiveness that is full, free and forever. (I Jn. 1:7; Ro.5:l.) II. The peace of a right rela- tionship with God. A. Only faith brings us into a rightrelation- ship with God through Jesus. (Jn. 1:11-12.) Peace is offered only to per- sons in right relationship with God! (Lk. 2:14.) B. Only when we experi- ence the peace of God can we love Him (I Jn 4:19.(or even understand Him.) Only when we love God can we love other people and be atpeace with them. (Eph. 2:14.) "Blessed are the peacemak- ers, for they shall be called sons of God." (Matt.5:9.) III. The peace of a Sprit: controlled life. A. The Holy Spirit empowers us to give usvictory over sin. B. The Holy Spirit indwells us to mold us into the image of Christ. (Ro.8:29.) IV. The peace of a purpose for living. (Matt. 5:16.) (Dr. Perry Webb tells of boarding a train and seating himself in a car where he was the only occupant. When the conductor came by, he asked Dr. Webb to move to another car. "Why?" "Because this one isn't hooked to anything that's going anywhere." V. The peace of adequate resources. (It's a good feeling to have enough money to pay- all your bills, isn' it?) It is a bet- ter feeling to know that what- ever may happen to us inthis world, God will see us through and help us have an adequate supply of life's necessities. (Matt: 6:25-34; Phil. 4:13.) And, to know the security of being paid up in God's estimate on judgment morning. Concl. Jesus Christ offers the peace of forgiveness that is full and free and forever. Jesusoffers the peace of belong- ing to the Father God and to the family of God. He is thepeace- bringer to the individual heart. He will bring harmony and peace within therelationships of the home and help you estab- lish harmony with those about you. Will youallow Him to bring peace to you today?
