A Promise and Path to His Peace.

A Promise and Path to His Peace.

Last week, we kicked off the Advent season, lifting our prayers for the promise of hope that Jesus brings as the light shining into our darkening world.

As we gather tonight, we do so, centering our prayers around a familiar passage, Luke 2:10-14, focusing on the peace that Jesus—the Messiah, Savior, and Lord—brought upon His arrival.

Can you imagine what these words from Luke meant for folks back then to hear about the arrival of a Savior, promising peace, especially amidst turmoil and struggles?

These verses weren’t just words for those people, nor should they be mere words for us today. They’re a proclamation of peace and hope echoing through and across all of time.

But peace often feels elusive in the world’s whirlwind of busyness, doesn’t it? Wars, illness, hardships, and the weight of sin can pull us down. But right there, in the midst of it all, enters Jesus—the Prince of Peace.

As I’m sure you can relate—there have been times in my life when everything seemed chaotic—when peace felt like a distant dream.

Yet, in Jesus alone, what once felt distant becomes an up-close reality. It’s not just about peace from the external chaos but a peace that truly goes beyond our understanding.

It’s a peace that isn’t about the absence of trouble but is all about Jesus Himself, right there in the midst of our not-so-peaceful moments—making all well within our souls that would otherwise grow weary, hopeless, and despair.

As we gather to pray together, let’s lift our hearts to God for one another, our city, and for Jesus, the Prince of Peace, to make His presence known to lives in our community and on the campuses in Fort Worth.

Let’s pray for transformed hearts and a world filled with His peace—glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom He is pleased (Luke 2:14).

May this season of Advent be a time we anticipate and reflect on what the arrival of Jesus means for us and those around us—how it offers a path out of darkness into His serene and unwavering peace.

See you tonight at 8 p.m. on Zoom.

God bless,
Pastor Alvin & Mallary Brown
