An Encouraging Word...

Peace on Earth

Christmas was just over two weeks away when the tranquility of the island paradise was shattered on the morning of December 7, 1941.  That day 353 Japanese aircraft attacked the military base at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii.  Four U.S. battleships were sunk.  188 US aircraft were destroyed, 2,402 Americans were killed and an additional 1,282 were wounded.

That attack propelled the United States to enter a war the nation had hoped to avoid.  On December 8, the United States declared war on Japan.  Three days later, the United States declared war on Germany.  More than 52 million people would die in World War II.  This was the war to end all wars, except it didn’t.

As Americans remember Pearl Harbor Day this week, these sobering statistics remind us of our need of the promised Prince of Peace.  Christmas 1941 was not a time of peace, unfortunately neither is Christmas 2010.  The world will never experience lasting peace until that day when Jesus comes again.  He is not simply the reason for the season.  He is the only hope for mankind.

And he will be called
  Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
  Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the greatness of his government and peace
  there will be no end.
Isaiah 9:6-7
