Two Together: Peace

And he came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near. For through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father.

Ephesians 2:17-18 (ESV)

If possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.

Romans 12:18 (AMP)

The first verse reveals God’s intension to remove the exclusivity of the Jewish nation. The peace Jesus brings, now exists between all parties, me and God, you and God, and you and me. We all have the same opportunity to be part of God’s family. Therefore, we should try to get along with our brothers and sisters.

God,

You have peace within your triune nature,
Father, Son, and Spirit.
When I interact with someone I don’t agree with,
Help me to understand
That your peace is not exclusively mine,
But that you can bring harmony
As I submit to your peace.

Amen
