Finding Peace in the Heart of Christmas

The angels told the shepherds that peace was available to those on whom God’s favor rests. Jesus basically said the same thing when He stated that peacemakers will be blessed, and they will be called children of God. When we are willing to seek reconciliation with others and fight for harmony rather than division, we’re identified with the heart of God who longs to reconcile the world to Himself. We then look like the Father, and we are recognized as His children.

The Heart of Christmas Is Love

If we have not experienced the grace of God, it’s difficult to offer the grace of God. If we don’t know the compassion of God, it’s difficult to express the compassion of God. But when we recognize the kind of love that God has for us, it becomes the way in which we treat and love others.
