Prince of Peace

I once was told,  you only need to worry if the flight attendants are afraid. I’ve been on some harrowing flights, at least ones I thought were harrowing, but I have never been on a flight when the attendant was afraid. That was always the clue that we were going to be okay. I might throw up, but we will be okay.

That’s part of the message Jesus provides in this practical lesson. Don’t watch the storm, keep your eyes on me. When we keep Jesus in view, we find him unflinchingly steadfast, like an anchor. No worry or fear crosses his face; you would only need to worry if it does.

Which is never. He’s the Prince of Peace.

Merry Christmas!

  1. “Turn your eyes upon Jesus
    Look full in His Wonderful face
    And the things of earth will grow strangely dim
    In the light of His Glory and Grace! “

  2. Years ago I sat at the back of a plane as we prepared to take off. As the engines began to roar at the beginning of the runway, suddenly something like a great cough happened in the motors. I looked over and the flight attendant turned white as a ghost. I heard the pilot come on and say something like “Something has come up and we will now return to the gate to change planes.” I thought often how close that was to the end, how God wanted me and my wife (among all the other travelers on that plane) escaped a very unpleasant experience, possibly ending our lives. People have ended their lives on falling planes. I just hope most of them were gazing into the face of Jesus Christ as they plummeted down to the last second of their lives here on earth.
