Jesus Christ – The Prince of Peace

The other night I watched the 2013 Christmas Devotional and was inspired by this talk from Apostle Russell M. Nelson. I was especially inspired by his message that personal peace can be experienced by everyone, thanks to the grace, love, and mercy of Jesus Christ. He said the gift of real and personal peace can come to those:

  • whose lives have been ravaged by war
  • who are not feeling well
  • who suffer in sorrow
  • whose labors are heavy
  • who mourn
  • who earnestly seek the Prince of Peace
  • who choose to walk in the ways of the Master

This is wonderful time of year to celebrate and remember the birth and life of the Prince of Peace. If we are burdened or troubled, He can bring peace to our souls. Likewise, we should seek out opportunities to bring peace and good will to those around us.

About Anthony in Minneapolis

I'm a Mormon who lives in Minneapolis. I'm a father of two little kids, a graduate student at the University of Minnesota, and someone who enjoys reading, running, and exploring ways to stay warm in Midwest winters! There are lots of things I love about being a Latter-day Saint, but I also enjoy learning from others how their faith informs and influences their lives. Whether you're a Catholic in California or a Baptist in Baltimore or nothing in particular, I hope we can get to know each other and share our beliefs and experiences to promote understanding and friendship. I also hope that the posts on Mormon in Minnesota will convey some insight into what it's like being a Latter-day Saint generally, and what it's like in Minnesota specifically.
