We’re well into the season of Advent and Christmas is looming near.
Peace on Earth and goodwill to all men is the traditional rallying cry. We have seen some amazing feats of goodwill through ‘Children in Need’ and ‘Band Aid 30’. Most people are instinctively generous towards those less fortunate than themselves. However peace is generally beyond our influence and we need to go to a higher authority. The Jesus of Christmas is the peace giver (John 14 verse 27) and for those who accept this gift, there is an offer of inner peace. A gift too good to refuse?
