Scripture of the Week

''For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. "

Is 9:6

I know, most people think of this as a Christmas passage, and here we are- almost Easter. But, here's an interesting bit of trivia for you: Did you know that when a king rode into town in biblical times, the animal he rode upon had significance? If he was riding a horse, he came to conquer. If he came on a donkey, he came in peace. Now, what did Jesus ride on Palm Sunday?

Now, let me ask you this- what do you picture when I say the word peace? Is it a person? Place? Has you life been so filled with battle, that you can't even picture it? Take some time, this week, and try. Picture "peace" in your head. For me, it would be a tropical beach. This is the setting where I have known the greatest peace. Now, add that picture to a project. Jesus is the Prince of Peace- so take that image of peace, and give it over to Him.
