Good morning people who live life in Christ and through Christ
2 Peter 3:14 NIV So then, dear friends, since you are looking forward to this, make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with Him.
As Christians, we talk a lot about not striving and not finding our righteousness in ourselves. This is so true.
But there is a ‘making every effort’ that is holy and necessary.
This ‘making every effort’ is not so that we will be accepted by God, but it is because we love God so much.
It is gratitude based, not fear based.
Normally our focus of having peace is a focus on peace with ourselves or in ourselves. It’s about us feeling good and not being anxious, afraid or worried.
But this scripture talks about ‘making every effort to be found at peace with God’. Hmmm, this is worth meditating on more.
May the Prince of Peace bring revelation to us all today. May He fill our hearts and minds as we focus on Him.
