“For a child is born to us,
a son is given to us.
The government will rest on his shoulders.
And he will be called:
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6)
Origins: Peace comes from the Hebrew word shalom meaning completeness, soundness, and absence of conflict inside and out
Meaning: In Scripture the more foundational meaning of peace is the spiritual harmony brought about by one’s restoration with God
Usage: Christ is the Prince of Peace because it is in Him, by Him, and through Him we’re restored to peace with God. The enmity we had because of our sin is removed by Christ’s death and the Holy Spirit is given to us to produce His fruit of peace in our lives and relationships.
Seek peace with God through receiving Christ’s sacrifice for you (Romans 5:1).
Surrender continuously to the Holy Spirit allowing Him to fill your life and relationships with peace (Galatians 5:22-23).
Do all you can to preserve the bond of peace you have with other believers (Ephesians 4:1-3).
Worry about nothing, pray about everything, and let God’s peace settle and guard your heart and mind (Philippians 4:6-7).
