Second Week of Advent: Peace
Monday, December 10, 2012

“The Lord bless you; and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you;
And be gracious to  you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you PEACE.”
-Numbers 6:24-26
The above words may be familiar because this blessing is still pronounced in our church today. But do we grasp its full meaning?  The Lord, the Creator Himself is speaking. His very name and character guarantee that He can give the promised PEACE. He graciously wants to bestow it on every one of us.
