"Now to our God and Father be glory forever and ever.Amen."
Paul, the Apostle of Grace
The word glory means to gaze upon the greatness of God...to stand in awe of how great God is. For all eternity we we will gaze upon God and be in awe of his greatness. We will forever be saying, “Look at how great God is!”
Why will we be gazing upon the greatness of God for all eternity?
Why will we say, "Look at how great God is!"?
One word - Grace!
2 Timothy 1:9 says God gave us grace in Christ before time began.
Peace on earth...that is what we long for. We long for peace in our homes, neighborhoods, villages, cities, states, countries, and world. Newspaper headlines and television news stories reflect the chaos happening all over the world. Throughout the world, violence and death have become the norm. Fear grips the hearts of most, leaving us longing for peace and asking, “Will there ever be peace on earth?”
God longs for peace, too.
God has a plan for peace.
God, in Isaiah 9:6-7, promised a male child would come from the nation of Israel, from the family line of King David to bring peace to the world.
