Living in the Truth at Peace – ROMANS 12:18
If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. Romans 12:18
To live in love for the lost, gentle speakers of the truth, we desire to live, as much as possible, at peace with all.
As we live for God, under the presence of God, we are honed to endure, to comprehend his will, and to be steadfast and patience towards how others behave. He gives us an understanding that not our human thinking can fathom but only the Holy Spirit, making us the “blind that can now see” each day. One of which is to be at peace with others.
We do not want to be the reason for conflict with others, we do not want to be the cause of toxic relationships, and we do not want to put a dent on the God’s truth as a loving God by being the person who opposes and not always in good terms with others.
Friends, Christ called us to be as much as we can, live peaceably with others. Though some days, it hurts to see evildoers prosper, or encounter a behavior that we do not like, but trust the power of the Holy Spirit to give us a new level of understanding each day – that we are not battling against flesh, but the spirits behind it. And we, as God’s children, who rest in us, counter it with hope that one day, may they encounter the Lord and know that He is good. Keep living at peace, for your love in Christ is secured.
