Jesus’ Names (6)

A few days ago, we read about Isaiah prophesying that Jesus would be called “Immanuel.” In our Bible Reading today, Isaiah said that Jesus would be called the “Prince of Peace.” Verse 6b says, “His name will be ‘Wonderful Counselor, Powerful God, Father Who Lives Forever, Prince of Peace.’” Verse 7a continues, “His power will continue to grow, and there will be peace without end.”
Today many people talk about peace. These people talk about a peace that means no war or fighting. But Jesus’ peace is different. His peace is inside of us. This peace happens because we know that Jesus died for our sins. Christians can have peace in their hearts even if they live among people who are fighting.
Jesus is the Prince, or Ruler, over that peace that happens in our lives. The book of Revelation tells us that Jesus will reign in heaven as the Prince of Peace forever.
Do you have true peace in your life today? Give your life to Jesus and follow Him every day.
