Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you.
2 Corinthians 13:11 (NIV)
Rejoice in the Lord! Thank You, Lord, for another day! God is telling us that if we do these things, He will give us love and peace. Love and peace are what we search for and strive for in this world and God is telling us that if we do these things, He will give us the very thing we are searching for.
Am I willing to put myself aside and strive for full restoration in that area that I have been ignoring?
Am I willing to encourage others even when it is difficult, and I just don't feel like it?
Am I willing to be of one mind with the Lord and live in that peace that only He can provide, even when my life is a mess?
The love and peace we long for is freely given from our Lord and Savior. Will you receive it?
