Peace on Earth

We live in a sin cursed world.  Though we are lulled to sleep in comfort and easy, we periodically are jarred awake by the vile nature of sin.  We instinctively ask “why?”  But no answers will truly fill the void.

But we are not hopeless.
We hope in the One who can bring true peace on earth.
So we long for the day when He returns to rule in justice.

He came once, full of grace and truth, but in lowly form.
He will return, full of grace and truth, but this time in power and glory.

So now the only hope we have is to remember and anticipate.
Remember, He broke into history and changed the world.
Anticipate, He will be the climax of history and change us–completely and permanently.

So, now we pray for peace on earth.

(See next post for the words to Longfellow’s original poem and the story behind the song.)

I love to study the Bible and I love to engage with others in learning. I had been privileged to do this on a regular basis through church ministry and through part-time teaching at a local Bible colleges. Helping individuals learn to feed themselves through their own study of God’s Word is joy-giving to me. Influencing groups to do life and church from a biblically grounded, theologically faithful perspective is my passion.
