If you will commit yourself to Him ~ AND KEEP YOUR MIND ~ both its inclination ~ and its character ~ ON HIM ~ Your Creator will guard you and keep you in perfect and constant peace!

Doing Right Promotes Peace

The Lord gives strength to His people! May the Lord bless His people with peace!

Psalm 85:8 Let me hear what God the Lord will speak, for he will speak peace to his people, to his saints; but let them not turn back to folly.


Isaiah 32:17 And the effect of righteousness will be peace, and the result of righteousness, quietness and trust forever.

Philippians 4:7 THE PEACE OF GOD ~ WHICH SURPASSES ALL UNDERSTANDING ~ will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Follow After Peace

Let's stop passing judgment on one another. Instead ~ make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in your brother's way. The Kingdom of God is not a matter of eating or drinking ~ but of righteousness ~ peace ~ AND JOY IN THE HOLY SPIRIT.


Therefore ~ MAKE EVERY EFFORT ~ to ~ DO WHAT LEADS TO PEACE ~ and to mutual edification.


Realize the importance of punctuality. Be willing to do what it takes to keep the time commitments you make. Missing deadlines is not only unprofessional, it can ruin the peace of an office or home environment.


When you constantly conduct personal business on company time after repeated warnings, you set yourself up for possible lay off and financial ruin ~ thereby losing your peace.

Be A Team Player

Watch what you say ~ and ~ HOW YOU SAY IT. A gentle answer turns away wrath ~ but a harsh word stirs up anger.


Proverbs 15:2-6 New King James Version (NKJV)

2 The tongue of the wise uses knowledge rightly, but the mouth of fools pours forth foolishness.

3 The eyes of the Lord are in every place, keeping watch on the evil and the good.

4 A wholesome tongue is a tree of life, but perverseness in it breaks the spirit.

5 A fool despises his father’s instruction, but he who receives correction is prudent.

6 In the house of the righteous there is much treasure, but in the revenue of the wicked is trouble.


Be Strong ~ Don't Give Up



So ~ No ~ we have not already reached perfection but WE PRESS ON THAT WE MAY LAY HOLD ~ of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of us!


Philippians 3 NKJV
13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do ~ FORGETTING THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE BEHIND ~ and reaching forward to those things which are ahead,

14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Ephesians 6:10-13
New King James Version (NKJV)

10 Finally ~ my brethren ~ BE STRONG IN THE LORD ~ and in the power of His might.

11 Put on the whole armor of God ~ that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood ~ but against principalities ~ against powers ~ against the rulers of the darkness of this age ~ against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God ~ that you may be able to withstand in the evil day ~ and having done all ~ to stand!
