Dec 23: Jesus is the Prince of Peace

Secret Plots and Glorious Gifts


Matthew 2:7-12


Herod called the Magi to for a secret meeting and told them fibs! Would you have believed Herod? 

Have you ever been lost? Imagine trying to find a baby in the middle of a town you don’t know, where every house is filled with even more people than usual because of the census. The Magi were overjoyed to see the star again, because then they knew which way to go. The Magi brought Jesus gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh, what strange gifts for a baby. 

Think about the rest of Jesus life. 

Why do you think they gave the gifts of gold – a symbol of kingship; frankincense – an incense and symbol of deity; and myrrh an anointing oil and a symbol of death?


Names of Jesus #23 ~ The Prince of Peace

Today’s promise

“A child will be born to us. A son will be given to us. He will rule over us. And he will be called Wonderful Adviser and Mighty God. He will also be called Father Who Lives Forever and Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6 


Jesus, Prince of Peace, when I am lost and feeling alone, please fill me with your peace and light up the way so that I can know which way go. Amen
