Scripture: Colossians 3:15
“And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful.”
In the above scripture the Apostle Paul calls believers to live in peace. We receive this peace from God through Christ Jesus. This peace should rule in our heart, meaning it should be in charge of how we live.
Believers are not called to live in violence or brawls among each other, but in peace.
This text discusses the need for Christians to tolerate, love, and support each other. Christians are all part of a spiritual “body,” which is the church with Christ as the head.
Therefore peace within the body requires peace between its parts.
The truth is every group of believers will experience internal conflict at times, but seeking peace will help us resolve issues in the context of Christian love.
we must deliberately allow that peace which has been given us have effect in our lives.
Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification.
Remember that the peace that Christ gives guides us in all decisions we make.
Finally let’s have an attitude of gratitude towards our Maker always.
Father Lord, thank you for my life, thank you for the peace you’ve given me, help me spread it to anyone I encounter in Jesus name, amen.
