Prince of Peace

Most of my life I have heard of the Nobel Peace Price. This was awarded to individuals who did the most toward promoting or achieving peace in the world. Although I am not an expert on such things I have wondered why some people were chosen for this prize. I suspect that it often has to do with world politics.
I was surprised to learn that the originator of the Nobel prize was Alfred Nobel who made his fortune from the invention of dynamite. How ironic that the man who changed the course of warfare, creating such horrors was the very man who made a provision in his will to promote world peace.
God invented true peace with His Son, Jesus. When Jesus was born the angels message to the shepherds was "on earth peace, good will toward men." (Luke 2:14) The biblical definition of peace is peace "with" God. (Rom. 5:1) Sin makes us enemies with God. Christ on the cross brought peace as we are reconciled with Him.
Also we can have the peace "of" God, "And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus." (Phil. 4:7) Thus, is our anxiousness healed!
 "Hark! The herald angels sing, 'Glory to the newborn King; Peace on earth, and mercy mild --- God and sinners reconciled."  --/ Wesley
