Ministry Letter November 2017

In the weeks leading up to Christmas people think, speak, and sing a lot about peace. The Bible says God provided the way for us to have peace by sending the Prince of Peace and foretold His birth centuries earlier.

For a child is born to us,
    a son is given to us.…
    And he will be called:…
Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6)

When Jesus Christ was born the angels announced “peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased” (Luke 2:14). The promised Prince of Peace had finally arrived!

So why is there still so much unrest and turmoil in the world? It seems like there are more wars, conflicts, and upheaval now than ever. Did Jesus fail as the Prince of Peace?

Many of us have the wrong idea about peace and the birth of Jesus Christ. Jesus wasn’t born to abolish man’s wars. We are to work for peace but we will always have wars until Christ returns and sets up His Kingdom of peace. But here’s the Good News: Jesus did not fail to bring peace.

The peace Jesus gives is not a peace like the world gives (John 14:27). He is the Prince of Peace not because he would end wars but because He would end the war with God.  The Bible says each of us has been born into sin and rebellion against God but by accepting Jesus’ death for us individually we are restored to peace with God and can experience His peace in our hearts even amid conflict (Colossians 1:21-22).

Canadians need to hear this truth about the Prince of Peace and why He came. And this is what we at Insight for Living Canada do every day as we teach God’s Word through our broadcasts, website, and publications. But we need your help to share those tidings of peace and great joy to all people!

Will you support us with your financial gift today?

People want and need peace. The truth is Jesus was born to die to secure the needed peace with God for all who believe (Isaiah 53:4-5). This is our message and what everyone needs to hear.

If you have received God’s gift of salvation through His Son then together we are God’s ambassadors to proclaim this message.  Without the support of God’s people we can do nothing.

Will you send a donation to Insight for Living Canada today so together we can continue proclaiming this message of peace across our needy country?

Because of the peace Christ brings,

Steve Johnson
Executive Director
