Angels announced at Jesus’ birth: “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!” (Luke 2:14 NKJV) Why, then and now, is there not “peace on earth?” It is because there are not more men of goodwill! More preachers should preach Christ “because of goodwill” toward men (Philippians 1:15). “Bondservants, be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in sincerity of heart, as to Christ; not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, with goodwill doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men” (Ephesians 6:5-7 NKJV).
Peace on earth only happens in those who follow the Prince of Peace.
