Peace is often the last thing that comes to mind during the holiday. Is it even possible to have peace in our lives this month? We try to carve time in our schedule. We try to play peacemaker in the family. We try to maintain those perfect snapshots, but it never seems to stay. Peace seems like a fragile commodity. In the Christmas story Jesus is called the “Prince of Peace”, but what does that mean? Sometimes to find peace we need to stop and look, maybe we need to “behold” before we find true peace.
We were created to respond to God’s greatness. To Behold Him. In order to embrace His greatness, we must be willing to surrender. When we surrender our will, we begin to find His will for us. We leave behind something that may have been good for something great. Join us this week as we look at Matthew 1, and we behold His greatness.
