Peace on Earth 5: The Day Peace Disappeared

Peace on Earth Day 5 – The Day Peace Disappeared

“Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned.” (Romans 5:12, ESV)

“So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate.” (Genesis 3:6, ESV)

We were meant to live in peace; it was God’s desire for us. He created man in perfect peace and placed him in the most perfect setting. We had everything going for us, so to speak, until Adam and Eve gave in to temptation and the lies of Satan. . .

“You shall not surely die. You will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

These lies weakened Eve’s resolve to obey God’s instructions and she fell into sin, and then Adam also fell. The moment that fruit hit their lips the world fell into darkness, the intimate connection with God shattered. And ever since, every human has followed the same pattern of sin.

This Christmas season, may we give deep thought to this sobering truth: Jesus came as our only hope for peace. He came to offer a bridge between us and God. Christmas often gives us a glimmer of the peace that was once here on earth, and it causes us to long for the day when we’ll experience perfect peace in Heaven.

Let’s thank Him today for willingly coming as the Messiah to bridge the gap our sin caused. We do not have to stay disconnected. The blood of Christ can draw us close once again to God our Father.
