Thus Christmas, The Celebration of Love

One nation shall not raise the sword against another, nor shall they train for war again.

Isaiah 2:4

Love is on the move because Jesus is in the room! Apparently, Jesus was on the battlefield on Christmas Eve 1914 when in several locations along the front lines, soldiers on both sides climbed out of their trenches, shook hands, sang songs, and traded tobacco and bottles of wine. They even played a pickup soccer game. One soldier wrote, “Thus Christmas, the celebration of Love, managed to bring mortal enemies together as friends for a time.” 

One might see this touching example of love on the move as a foretaste of the fulfillment of Isaiah’s prophecy from the above verse. What could cause deadly enemies to lay day their guns? Well, maybe not “what” but rather “who.” Only Jesus, the One the Scriptures call the “Prince of Peace.” 

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 (Isaiah 9:6).

Shalom… everlasting peace!
