Be joyful. Grow to maturity. Encourage each other. Live in harmony and peace. Then the God of love and peace will be with you. —II Corinthians 13:11
Do you have joy— a rejoicing or delighting in experiencing God’s grace? Are you an encourager of others? Is your life being lived in harmony and peace with others? If these things are true, then the God of love and peace is with you!
If you are not experiencing joy— a rejoicing or delighting in experiencing God’s grace— what is keeping you from doing so? Resolve it! If you are not being an encourager of others— why not? Encourage someone today! Are you in conflict with anyone? Seek now to work things out with the other party.
To truly experience the God of love and peace, these things must be characteristic of our lives. May it be so!
Dear Father, search my heart and reveal any actions I must take to truly experience Your love and peace to the fullest in Jesus and by the Spirit’s power.
