We were created to glorify God with every thought, every word and every action. But our sin has caused us to glorify other things more than we glorify God. As a result, we have lost peace with God, which robs us of peace within, which destroys our peace with others. That baby in the manger came to restore this broken peace with God so that we could once again have peace within and peace with others. and to give us a new heart that would desire to glorify Him above everything else.

Divisions, arguing and fighting have not only destroyed families, but churches, and even entire governments. The Bible says, “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” As the Body of Christ, we have been called to function together in oneness of mind and spirit, united by His Word. We must lay our own desires aside and put Christ above all, using our different spiritual gifts to make the Body whole and healthy.
