March 13, 2017

I was surprised by this in my reading today:
“"Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased."”
‭‭Luke‬ ‭2:14‬ ‭NASB‬‬
I had always heard it "...and on earth peace, good will toward men." I never understood it because as far as I can see, there will never be peace on this earth. And Jesus said He didn't come to bring peace, but a sword.
When I saw this, I'm thinking, "Whoa! What's this?" So I went to the Greek interlinear and there it was.
This puts a whole new meaning to this and makes so much more sense. It's peace among those who God is pleased with. In other words, peace among His chosen ones.
