The Prince of Peace

By   •   December 17   •   Topics:

To hate, to discriminate against those who look different, who talk different, who have different national backgrounds, or who act differently from the dominant group, is a universal trait of human nature. I say that there is only one possible solution and that is a vital experience with Christ on the part of all races. In Christ the middle wall of partition is broken down, the Bible says. There is no Jew or Gentile, or black or white or yellow or red. We could be one great brotherhood in Christ. However, until we come to recognize Him as the Prince of Peace, and receive His love in our hearts, the racial tensions will increase.

Prayer for the day

I pray for Your love, Lord Jesus, to conquer hate or prejudice—whenever these ugly transgressions seep into my heart.

    Evil is colorblind. Murderers, rapists, thieves and fraudsters can be found in every race on the planet. It’s human nature. Evil and love are heart conditions. Choose Jesus Christ and love will abound.

  2. Jean Elliott says:

    Sometimes I think we all have a little prejudice in us. A little hate. Evil thinking not really wanting to. It just happens. I am trying to find peace within my own heart. I pray I get it and can overcome the bitterness in my heart. Anyone reading this, please pray for me. Thank you.

    Today as I respond on the reading, I am touched by the words, hated and prejudice has no place in the heart of one who has been touch by Jesus Christ our Lord.

    Hate is a very consuming fire. I experience many people with this feeling, but I never give in to the devil who works through the ungodly. I know that love is going to win.I praise the Lord Jesus for that,

  8. Rosario Lewis says:

    Make me a channel of your peace. Where there is hatred let me bring love. Where there is sin your pardon love. Help me live everyone as my brother and sister in the Lord. Glory to God. Amen
