was to bring "Peace on Earth." It was

the peace that Jesus came to bring
was not the dream of politicians, nor

peace tribunals. There can be no world
peace while men remain in rebellion
to the laws and government of God.
Hague conferences and Increasing

In an important sense Jesus, as he said
himself, came not to bring peace but
the sword. The only true and abiding
peace among men is to be found when
and as man makes his Individual peace
"My peace I give unto you." "Not
as the world giveth." What does the
peace of Jesus mean? What did it
mean to him? It meant the settled
calm that gave him heart and courage

the neglect of his friends, in the gar garden

shame. So it is that the peace of
Jesus helps his children, his followers.
It keeps the soul at rest while storms

in fury upon them. It enabled them to
