10 Days of Thanksgiving – Day 5: Thankful for God’s Peace

Colossians 3:15

Verse of the Day:  Colossians 3:15   

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.  

When you have a personal relationship with Jesus, His peace pours into your heart. When you trust in the Lord with all your heart you can live at peace no matter what is happening around you. The closer you get to God the more start to see how His peace changes your heart. What may have once been angry and hurtful doesn’t have to be that way anymore. It’s up to you to decide if you are going to let God in and change your once hardened heart. Be thankful for the peace God freely gives through Jesus Christ to all believers.

Live at Peace

Romans 12 18 2

 

Verse of the Day:  Romans 12:18

If possible, to the best of your ability, live at peace with all people.

The Bible tells us that we should try our best to live at peace with all people. This includes our family, friends, our brothers and sisters in Christ, the people we work with and as much as possible we should try to make peace with our enemies. We should stand up for what is right, pray for peace and do whatever we can to promote it by living godly lives that honor the Lord. We cannot control what other people do, but we certainly can seek to control our own actions and responses. It may not always be easy, but it will be worth it to try to live peacefully with others, especially those who are difficult to deal with. Do not be vengeful, overcome evil and do your part to live at peace.
