Message of the Day: Peace of Mind and Soul through Jesus Our Savior!
“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!” (Luke 2:14, NKJV)
This is a hymn called the Gloria in Excelsis Deo, from the first words of the Latin Vulgate translation meaning, “Glory to God in the Highest”. The angels acknowledged the glory and majesty of God by giving praise to him.
The Roman Empire was experiencing the Pax Romana or Roman Peace, characterized by external tranquility. However, the angels proclaimed a deeper, more lasting peace than Pax Romana – a peace of mind and soul through Jesus the Savior.
God’s gift of such a savior was proof of his good will towards mankind and his desire that people everywhere be brought into a relationship of peace with him.
