"Let the Peace of Christ Rule..."
“Let the Peace of Christ Rule…”
Love is the perfect bond of unity.
Believers do not have to “seek/create” unity.
We are unified by definition.
We are One Body of the Lord Jesus.
The Spirit unifies.
What we must do is simple…
- set aside ourselves
- put on the things of the Spirit.
Therefore, we are able to…
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful.
Notice the word “let”.
Permit to function.
True Believers have the Peace of Christ.
We must decide to let His Peace rule in our hearts.
We can set Peace aside.
We can live in the flesh.
Do you lack peace?
Are you a Believer?
If so, then allow the peace of the Lord to rule.
Rule not your own heart.
This is Peace within.
There is also the Peace from without...Peace with the Body.
We are called in One Body.
Again, One Body.
Therefore, be thankful for the Peace that the Lord provides in His Body.
Pursuit Peace by being faithful in living in Love.
Pursue peace with all men, and the sanctification without which no one will see the Lord.
Depart from evil and do good;
Seek peace and pursue it.
So then we pursue the things which make for peace and the building up of one another.
Now flee from youthful lusts and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart.
“HE MUST TURN AWAY FROM EVIL AND DO GOOD;
HE MUST SEEK PEACE AND PURSUE IT.
