Topic: At Peace With All – Higher Every Day by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi | Date: Sunday,May 13,2018.
“If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men” (Romans 12:18).
Many people wonder whether it is possible to live peacefully with all people in this terrible world. They reason so because the present world is full of trouble-makers with few trouble-shooters. If they are not fighting you directly, they may be instigating somebody against you. But why do people hate and do evil to others? The simple answer the Bible gives is that they are being controlled by the spirit of Satan, the god of this world. That is why you see some youths violent, destructive, fighting and quarreling, causing sorrows for others. It is because the Prince of peace, Jesus Christ, is not ruling their lives.
If you are truly born again it will not be difficult for you to live in peace and make peace with all kinds of people, even when they hurt you. Giving your life to Christ is a unique experience. He will transmit His peaceful character into your life. Accept Him as your Lord and personal Saviour now. Pray that God should sanctify your heart. Sanctification experience helps one to live in peace with all men.
Challenge: Be a trouble shooter and not a trouble maker.
Prayer: God grant me the grace to be at peace with everyone, in Jesus’ name
