Advent Devotional Series: Glory to God in the Highest and Peace on Earth

Blog Archives:

Luke 2:14 – “Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to men on whom his favour rests.”

There is a connection between contemplating God and peace on earth. We see this connection regularly in our work at EduDeo Ministries. The gospel message of God’s love shown in Jesus has a way of bringing peace, joy, and healing to the restless heart of mankind, on whom God’s favour rests.

At the heart of EduDeo’s mission is this simple thought:

Gospel + Education = Transformation

It’s another way of telling the Christmas story, really.

It was delivered in the message from the Angels to the Shepherds that first Christmas night at the humble birth of Jesus in Bethlehem. Their worship and praise was carried in the praises and songs of this heavenly choir.

And this is their message. Earth is touched by heaven. The highest spanned the distance of eternity and dwelt on earth. And Earth learned the song of heaven... “Glory to God in the highest.”

As we learn this song together, it leads us to the places of our heart that are in need of the transformation that only Jesus can bring.

It’s truly amazing what happens when the world lifts up the saving Name of Jesus. Lives are transformed. Homes become places of refuge and joy. Schools become adventures in learning that our world belongs to God. Hospitals are built that minister the healing touch of Jesus.

And it started with the birth of Jesus, by the power of the One who came to his own. And to the many who received Him, He extended his loving grace to become children of God.
