SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 05/10/15- “Let Peace Rule!” (Colossians 3:15)
Premise Question: As individual members of one whole body, the august body of Jesus Christ, known as, The Company of The Redeemed, how do we let the peace and harmony of Christ rule our hearts and everyday lives?
And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful. (Colossians 3:15 NLT)
Allow mutual harmony to govern your hearts, permitting Christ’s peace to strike an accord of agreement that controls your conduct towards one another, since it has now and forevermore been established, through Christ, that we all have been brought together to become individual parts of one whole body, with a divine command to fulfill our holy vocation and calling of being in a perpetual state of tranquillity with each other. And, in that serene peace, we are to cultivate an atmosphere of thankfulness, practicing expressions of gratitude, not just with words, but with our behaviors and actions as well! (Colossians 3:15 PDCP)
Bottom Line: First and foremost, we must be willing to diligently walk in love and release and forgiveness towards others. We should be extremely patient with each other in an enduring perseverance, which has been described as, passion with patience. We should be forbearing, long-suffering and always considerate and merciful towards others. We should prefer each other before and above ourselves. We should be kind and show generosity towards others. And, we should never stop giving thanks, being thankful and expressing gratitude towards Papa God and others. When we actively engage in these things, peace, harmony and love will rule our hearts and lives and others will see and want to engage and also become members of The Company of The Redeemed, which is, The Body of Christ. And then, all of our hearts will be set free to rejoice and praise in our worship of The One True Sovereign LORD God Almighty, Jesus Christ, our LORD and Savior. Blessings…
