Daily Wisdom Devotion: Follow Peace with all men
Matt 5:9, Heb 12:14, Matthew 18:7, Gen 13: 1-14
Men and brethren, as a child of God, we must not allow what happened in our past to mess up your future. The spirit of resolute determination must possess us before we can develop our spiritual graces that will allow us to live a life worthy of children of the kingdom. Jesus said “Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God.” Matt 5:9. in a world where people fight for their own god, we must allow our God to fight for us. Therefore, I declare, any man or woman sent to frustrate any of our Partners; to frustrate your life, your marriage, and your career shall have double problems. God will fight for you.
In Heb 12:14, the attitude of these Hebrews towards Christ was neither understood nor appreciated by the unbelieving Jews; they regarded the believers as renegades and denounced as apostates the faith of their fathers. Every effort was made by them to poison the apostle’s minds against the Gospel, and where this failed, relentless persecution was brought to bear upon them. Hence, it was by no means an easy matter for them to maintain the spirit of the Gospel and live amicably with those who surrounded them; instead, they were sorely tempted to entertain a bitter spirit toward those who troubled them so unjustly, to retaliate and avenge their wrongs. Here, then, was the need for them to be exhorted “follow peace with all men!”
Have you been maltreated, cheated and wounded that you now wish for revenge against your neighbour? Are you of the generation that is releasing Holy fire upon every man that tends to say anything contrary to your words? Is this the reason why your prayers are not been answered because you are praying amiss? You must let every bitterness go away. It is not easy to let go but it has a lot of advantages if we do. As long as we are on this earth, we should realise that the children of the devil have no love for the children of God, and they delight in doing whatever they can to annoy and aggravate them; and nothing gives them more pleasure than to see successful their efforts to tempt them to compromise or stir up unto angry retaliation. Thus it is a timely injunction for all believers, in any age and in any country, to strive earnestly to live in peace with all men. Therefore, anytime you allow God to fight your battle, you activate the favour of God to defend and protect and fight for you. Therefore, all those after you shall fumble and stumble at your appearance in Jesus name
“Follow peace with all men.” This is a very humbling word that Christians require to be told to do this. Its implication is clear: by nature men are fractious, wrathful, revengeful creatures. That is one reason why Christ declared “it must needs that offences come” Matthew 18:7 -“must” because of the awful depravity of fallen human nature; yet forget not that He at once added, “But woe to that man by whom the offence cometh.” It is because of this contentious, envious, revengeful, spirit which is in us, that we need the exhortation of our text, and in view of what is recorded in Scripture, even of saints, its timeliness is the more apparent. I declare, the Lord shall fight for you, and you shall hold your peace
Have we not read of “the strife” between the herdsmen of Abraham and Lot which caused the patriarch and his nephew to part asunder? Gen 13: 1-14. Have we not read of the “contention” between Paul and Barnabas which issued in their separating? Acts 15:36-41. These are solemn warnings, danger-signals, which we all do well to take to heart. “Follow peace with all men.” The Greek word for “follow” signifies an “earnest pursuit:” The Christian is to spare no effort to live amicably with all men, and no matter how contentious and unfriendly they may be, he is to strive and overtake that which seeks to flee from him. Just as Abraham was blessed for seeking peace, so will you be remembered by God and be blessed in hundredfold. Amen
Peace is one of the outstanding graces which the Christian is called upon to exercise and manifest. All things pertaining to the Church are denominated things of peace. God is “the God of peace” Heb. 13:20, Christ is “the Prince of peace” Isa. 9:6, a believer is designated “the son of peace” Luke 10-6, and Christians are bidden to have their “feet shod with the preparation of the Gospel of peace” Eph. 6:15. Peace may be elusive and hard to capture, nevertheless strive after it; run hard in the chase thereof, for it is well worth overtaking. Spare no pains; strain every nerve to attain unto it. If this exhortation be duly heeded by us then Christians are plainly forbidden to embroil themselves or take any part in the strives and quarrels of the world: thus we are hereby forbidden to engage in politics of bitterness, where there is little else than envy, contention and anger. If you have miss it, today is a good day to say Father, I am sorry.
Still less may the Christian take any part in war: there is not a single word in all the New Testament. which warrants a follower of the Prince of peace slaying his fellowmen. “Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it” Ps. 34:14. “If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men” Rom. 12:18: with fellow-Christians, with those who are strangers to Christ Eph. 2:19, with our enemies Matthew 5:44. Give no encouragement to those who love contention; refrain from all argument—the things of God are too holy: debating is a work of the flesh.
To “follow peace with all men” presupposes righteousness in our dealings with them, for we most certainly are not entitled to expect them to treat us amicably unless we give unto each his due, and treat others as we would have them treat us. Do not merely be placid when no one irritates you, but go out of your way to be gracious unto those who oppose. Be not fretful if others fail to render the respect which you consider to be your due. Do not be so ready to “stand up for your rights,” but yield everything except truth and the requirements of holiness. If we would follow peace, we must gird up our loins with the girdle of forbearance: we must resolve that as we will not give offence, so neither will take offence, and if offence be felt, we must resolve to forgive. Remember we cannot successfully “pursue peace” if the heavy burden of pride be on our shoulder: pride ever stirs up strife. Nor can we “pursue peace” if the spirit of envy fills the heart: envy is sure to see faults where they exist not, and make trouble. Nor can we “pursue peace” if we are loose-tongued, busybodies, talebearers.
Follow peace with all men.” This includes even more than we have intimated above: the Christian is not only to be a peace-keeper, but he should seek to be a peace-maker: such have the express benediction of Christ—”Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God” (Matthew 5:9). Seek, then, to restore amicable relations between those who are at enmity and be used of God as a medium of their reconciliation. Instead of fanning the flames of dissension or driving the wedge of division further in, endeavour to cool them by the water of the Word, and by a gracious behaviour and wise counsel seek to smooth out difficulties and heal wounds. “And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace” James 3:18. Peaceable men do sow a seed that afterward will yield sheaves of comfort into their own bosoms. Let your determination principle be sweetened by tenderness towards your fellow-men. May God increase your wisdom
