Live in peace

1. Let’s live in peace
With everyone,

2. And offer help
To those who fall.

3. Let’s spread our faith
Throughout the world,

4. And dwell in love
With one and all.

2. We should help others (Romans 15:2; NLT).

If another believer is overcome by some sin, you who are godly should gently and humbly help that person back on to the right path. And be careful not to fall into the same temptation yourself (Galatians 6:1; NLT).

If you think you are too important to help someone, you are only fooling yourself. You are not that important (Galatians 6:3; NLT).

3. Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone (Mark 16:15; NLT).

4. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them (1 John 4:16; NIV).

Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them (Romans 12:9; NLT).

  • Living at peace with everyone is hard work, especially when people don’t apply that same standard. Interestingly those who have given me the most problems have been other christians, usually with a doctrinal axe to grind. We can only do as our Lord guides us to do, and leave it there. I pray our Father God is ministering to you today Ruth, particularly any aches and pains. May He soothe your soul !

    • Yes, Christians are always the hardest to come to terms with, because we expect more of them. But we’re all human, and have many faults. May He soothe your soul too, dear Alan. Meanwhile, I owe you a HUGE debt of gratitude: do you remember including a link to a song by the Gaither Vocal Band a few days ago? Well, I looked it up, and it really spoke to me. I’ve made it unto a link I can find easily any time, to be refreshed, and to rejoice along with the singers. This might not sound earth-stopping to anyone else, but it’s making a really big difference to me, as I struggle with this horrible sense of dread (a relationship problem with a fellow-Christian has seriously re-triggered my PTSD).
      May God bless you, my brother in Christ, your dear wife, and all your family today, and every day XXXXXX

      • I remember the song well, it is one of my many favourites from the Gaither archive. I could list lots of great songs here, but the two that come to mind are: “There was a woman” by Gerald Wolfe and “Suppertime” by George Younce. Music is important Ruth, I often find songs that really minister to my spirit which then I play endlessly. I am blessed knowing that I shared something that blesses you!

      • I’ve noted down those two songs, Alan, for which many thanks. I can’t sing or play instruments any more, because of my health issues, but I was a musician all my life till 2005. I do the same as you, and just play the music that hits me over and over, absorbing it deep into my heart and soul. I’m so glad it helps you, too. “What a time” is my smash favourite! XXXXXX
