There are great spiritual benefits to pursuing a peaceful and peace-filled life.
Not only should we each pursue this way of life, according to the Bible, but we should endeavor to generate a peaceful atmosphere wherever we go. Now, let’s look at what the Bible says to us on this subject.
Seek peace and pursue it. (Ps 34:14 ASV)
Deceit is in the heart of them that devise evil; but to the counsellors of peace is joy. (Pro 12:20 ASV)
Whoever is wicked covets the spoil of evildoers, but the root of the righteous bears fruit. (Pro 12:12 NIV)
“Happy are people who make peace, because they will be called God’s children.” (Mt 5:9 CEB)
Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord. (Heb 12:14 ESV)
Those who advise a peaceful resolution to problems or issues receive the reward of joy. That is a beautiful blessing to desire and to receive.
The basis of peace in negotiations generates a good harvest in all of its endeavors. Peacemakers are happy because they are known as children of God.
We’re instructed in God’s Word to work toward peace with everyone, as well to make every effort to live a holy life. The result of obeying the Bible is that we are enabled to live a life that is rewarding, fulfilling, and blessed by God. Praise the Lord!
