Peace on Earth . . . Really?
Christmas is a time for glorious worship and joyful celebration. At the very first Christmas, God provided His own massive choir of angels to lift up magnificent praise at the birth of His Son Jesus.
The angelic chorus spoke of peace on earth at time when little peace could be found. In fact, many years have passed and peace is still hard to find. Is this promise of peace for real? Can there be peace on earth?
In our text, the heavenly host of angelic messengers clearly announced that the birth of Christ would bring glory to God and peace on earth.
