The end of verse 4 says, "and they will live securely, for then his greatness will reach the ends of the earth." There’s been a lot of talk about national security in the past few years. People want our government to do everything it can to protect its citizens from violent people. This security includes extra checks at the airports. There are some people suggesting that we station our military troops on our borders to give us more security from violent people illegally sneaking into our country. And while we all want our government to do everything possible it can, in human terms, we can never have perfect security. People make mistakes, people can’t possibly know everything that’s going on. People don’t have full knowledge on how our enemies think and plan.

That’s why it’s so great that our Newborn King brings us one other blessing: security. Because these things that prevent us from having total security from our enemies aren’t an issue with Jesus. Jesus is all-knowing. Jesus is all-powerful. Jesus is all-loving. Jesus is the perfect guardian for your body and soul. And his rule lasts forever.
