Did you know that God desires for us to live in peace with others? He also knows that we’ll not always be at peace with others. Conflicts occur. At times, conflicts aren’t easily resolved. In fact, there are occasions when conflicts cannot be resolved. However, God wants us to do all we can to be at peace with everyone.
As followers of Christ we know full well that when God isn’t in full control of our lives, we can act a fool. Our salvation doesn’t automatically keep us from being mean, jealous, hateful, or angry. It’s only as we ask the Holy Spirit to work in us and through us and yield our nature to His nature, that we’re going to move beyond pride into the behaviors that establish peace.
As you strive to live at peace with others, standing on the truth of God’s Word, know that God stands with you. He will turn our conflict and persecution into good for our eternal benefit if we will let him.
“Do all that you can to live in peace with everyone.”
