Follow After Peace

 

Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another” (Romans 14:19). We live in a chaotic age. I don’t have to tell you that as we all experience it every day. There are so many things that divide us. We seem always to be at odds with others on so many issues. As Christians, we need to make sure we are not making Christianity one of those odds. We not only want to follow after peace, we want peace to follow us. Peace is wholeness and there are in so many ways so many broken people. Peace brings together the pieces and heals them. Peace doesn’t tear down, it builds up. I know people who tear another person down to build themselves up. But that isn’t how God works. He loves the ungodly. He loves the sinner. He loves those who are downtrodden and weak. He lifts up the poor and needy. And that’s what should be following us. Peace is a natural thing for the true believer. Jesus is our peace, and we are not only at peace, but share a peace that passes understanding.
