Topic: The Path to Peace
Scripture: Colossians 3:13-14
Colossians talks about how not to live if we want to spend eternity with God, and in this passage tells us how to live in order to have happiness and peace now and forever. We need a compassionate heart, we need to be humble and forgiving. This cloak of goodness sounds simple and it is. The problem is that we find it hard to live up to. We want to be forgiven but find it hard to forgive.
We want others to put up with our faults and failings, but don’t like to deal with the same things in others. It can be hard to be humble, to admit that others are smarter, more skilled, more talented than we are. If we walk in love, then this becomes easier. But, walking in love isn’t as easy as it seems either. However, if we want peace, we need to work on this.
Hatred is born from fear, and love can cast out fear. When we eliminate fear from our lives, we can have peace. The world around us may be in chaos, but we don’t have to buy into it. We reap what we sow in life and if we are kind, people tend to be kind to us.
If we are compassionate, people will be compassionate to us. If we don’t forgive others, why should anyone forgive us? There’s another saying, “What goes around, comes around.” If we are living the way of love and peace, then the reward in heaven will be great.
Prayer For Today
Loving and gracious God, you show us the way, you constantly call us back to follow in Jesus’ footsteps. May we persevere in the way to live. Amen.
