Isaiah’s ancient prophecy in Isaiah 9 is a promise about Jesus – and about peace for broken relationships:

‘Every warrior’s boot used in battle and every garment rolled in blood will be destined for burning,

will be fuel for the fire.’ (Isaiah 9v5)

If you think the God of the Old Testament is only angry and violent this verse should make you think again God’s promise in Jesus is to ultimately destroy the things that create and sustain violence.

Is there unresolved conflict in your life? In Jesus, God offers us the chance to restore the broken relationships in our lives and in the world around us.

Jesus is the Prince of Peace. What would it take to unwrap (or give) the gift of peace this Christmas?
