THE SECOND CANDLE OF ADVENT
(The Candle of Peace)
The second candle reminds that Jesus comes to bring Peace to both the world and to people’s hearts. Without Christ there is no peace in this world.
Prophetic Verse: “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on His shoulders. And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6
Fulfillment of Prophecy: “…the morning light from heaven is about to break upon us, to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, and to guide us to the path of peace .” Luke 1:78b-79
This passage reminds us to repent and seek Christ’s peace. Reflect on the peace that Christ’s life, death and resurrection provides.
“What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace.”
(Agnes M. Pahro)
