Series: What’s in a Name? │Prince of Peace


Sunday’s Message —  Prince of Peace

Series: What’s in a Name? │ Scripture: Isaiah 9:6-7

Pastor Adam Kohlstrom│December 9, 2018







If you had a time machine and could travel back to visit any Christmas moment in your life, which one would you choose?


If Jesus is the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6) why do you think there seems to be so little “peace and quiet” surrounding the celebration of His arrival?


Where and how are people today “Lookin’ for their missing peace?”


What does it mean to say that we are “broken”? How is this world broken? How does Jesus’ advent bring shalom to our brokenness?


Luke 1:77-79. Zechariah sang of the one who was coming: “to give knowledge of salvation to his people in the forgiveness of their sins…to guide our feet into the way of peace.” How is peace described in this song?


The Hebrew word for peace – shalom – means far more than just an absence of conflict. Strong’s Concordance defines shalom as: completeness, wholeness, health, peace, welfare, safety, soundness, tranquility, prosperity, perfectness, fullness, rest, harmony, the absence of agitation or discord. How might this definition transform our understanding of the angel’s proclamation in Luke 2:14 or Isaiah’s words in Isaiah 9:6?


Matthew 2:4-6; Micah 5:2-5. Matthew tells us that Jesus fulfills Micah’s prophesy of a ruler who will come and shepherd His people. In light of Romans 5:1, what does it mean that Jesus “shall be their peace” (Micah 5:5)?


John 14:27; 16:33. What kind of peace does the world give? How is the peace that Jesus gives different from the peace the world gives?


We sing: “Truly He taught us to love one another / His law is love and His gospel is peace” (O Holy Night!) and: “Peace on earth and mercy mild / God and sinners reconciled” (Hark! the Herald Angels Sing) According to these songs, what is the meaning of the peace Jesus came to bring us? Do you know His peace today? How do you need to experience peace right now?
