Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, on the throne of David, and on his kingdom, to order it…
Napoleon, standing amid the ambassadors of Europe, reassured the entire continent by the utterance of his New Year's motto, "The empire is peace." But with far greater truth may we apply the words to Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace, whose rule over the soul is the synonym of peace unspeakable and full of glory. And as His government spreads further and further over the soul, with its growing area there is growing peace, until they shall both become complete to all the heights, and depths, and breadths of blessedness. Of the increase or his government, and of our peace, there is no end.
(F. B. Meyer B. A.)
