“Seek Peace and Ensue It”

“Seek Peace and Ensue It”




constantly changing world is controlled by a constant and un changing

God.  His love and purpose for us never

changes.  No matter how chaotic the world

around us may become, we can move through it with an inner calm or peace, with

the assurance “that all things work together for the good of those that love

the Lord.”   (Romans 8:28)  We need to develop an inner calm like that

promised in Philippians 4:6-7.  “Be

anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with

thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God,

which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through

Christ Jesus.”  

                In John 10:10(b) Jesus promises

a more abundant life.  But until we have

learned to live at peace with ourselves, then we cannot be fully successful in

living with others.  It is up to us, each

individually to seek that life and to incorporate the qualities necessary into

our pattern of living.

A pleasant life is conditional.  One of the conditions is the pursuit of

peace. “For he that will love life and see good days…let him seek peace and

ensue it.”   (I Peter3:10-11) 

Application: This week, let’s look at ways

to pursue peace.
