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.
This is one of the many reasons I am thankful for my relationship with Jesus Christ…PEACE. I have a peaceable spirit. Like it’s my protection. I am enveloped in a peaceable spirit. Wouldn’t you want to have that? Wouldn’t that …be a great thing to carry with you each day? The peace of God is real and as a believer of Christ…it is available to you.
YOU ARE CALLED TO LIVE IN PEACE…. Sometimes I think people think the bible is just speaking about things that don’t really apply to us. But any sentence that says…you are called…to me that means, I am specifically being spoken to. If you are reading the bible…then it is specifically speaking to YOU! And we are called to live in PEACE. Not in argument, anger, dysfunction, strife, tension, tolerating, frustration, annoyance, disagreement…but in PEACE. If you are not living in peace with someone…then you are not living as God called you to live. Fix it up. Whatever situation you have with someone right now…fix it up. Because if you are not at peace with them you are against God’s wishes. Though we are many members in this world, yet we are but one body. The body of Christ.
AND ALWAYS BE THANKFUL… The work of thanksgiving to God is such a sweet and pleasant work that it will help to make us sweet and pleasant towards all. If we start speaking in thanksgiving towards the things we don’t like…there is no room anything but peace. Find the good in it…there is good in all things if you seek it out. Make the effort to find the good and then begin to be thankful for it.
