the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all” (1 Timothy 2:5-6). • Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the cross, came back to life from the grave, and is your only way to heaven. “Whoever believes in the son has eternal life” (John 3:36). You may want to express your conviction to God like this: “Dear God, thank you for making it possible for me to have peace with you! I believe that when Christ died he was paying the penalty for my sins. I now receive him into my life as my Savior, so I can have forgiveness and never-ending life from you! Thank you for forgiveness, eternal life, and peace!” Someday the Christ who came so humbly at Christmas will come again in glory and power to establish his kingdom on earth. When he does, our world will finally know the peace of God in its fullest sense.

How Realistic Is Peace? But are those words really true? Can God’s peace become a reality in our lives and in our world? Or was the promise of the angels just a hollow, empty hope, unrealistic for life as it really is?

God’s peace has been made possible by his son, Jesus. That peace becomes a reality in the lives of men and women who turn to Christ as their Savior from sin. Then, despite the trials and difficulties of life, they can know “the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding” (Philippians 4:7).
