WEEK 3: Peace With People

Don’t quarrel with anyone. Be at peace with everyone, just as much as possible. Romans 12:18 

So let’s pursue those things which bring peace and which are good for each other. Romans 14:19

Blessed are the peacemakers, For they shall be called sons of God. Matthew 5:9

If we want the blessings of God, we have to do the will of God. It’s God’s will for us to be peacemakers not trouble makers.

Who has God placed upon your heart that you need to do your part to make peace with?

You can’t control what someone else does and how they respond, but as much as possible do your part to make peace with everyone.

I can only control me. I can’t control others. Instead of worrying about what others are doing, or not doing, I need to do the best that I can. Matthew 7:3-5 “And why worry about a speck in your friend’s eye when you have a log in your own? How can you think of saying to your friend,[b] ‘Let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,’ when you can’t see past the log in your own eye? Hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend’s eye.

The peace Jesus is talking about in this beatitude is not a matter of technique. It’s a matter of grace. If we intend to seek peace as a goal in our lives, we must work backwards. We don’t begin with peace as a task—we start with peace as a gift.

“Don’t”, “be at”, “pursue”, all take intentional effort on our part. But if we do these things to make peace with others, the reward & blessing is to be called God’s children.

Celebrate Recovery principle 6 offers you a way to do your part.

Evaluate all my relationships. Offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me and make amends for harm I’ve done to others, except when to do so would harm them or others.

“Happy are the merciful.” (Matthew 5: 7)
“Happy are the peacemakers.” (Matthew 5: 9)

Principle 6 Prayer:

Dear God, I pray for willingness—willingness to evaluate all my past and current relationships. Please show me the people who I have hurt, and help me become willing to offer my amends to them. Also, God, give me Your strength to become willing to offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me. I pray for Your perfect timing for taking the action that Principle 6 calls for. I ask all these things in Your Son’s name, Amen.

As a Christian we are responsible for our own actions and should seek peace at all levels. We should lay aside our causes for contention and seek harmony. Loss of harmony causes friction in our daily life as well as our relationship with GOD. we should be building others up with grace and harmony. Peacemakers strive to use their influence to promote peace and to help prevent long and ugly quarrels. It only takes one person to intercede at the right time to help turn the tide in a relationship.

If we concentrate more own not holding grudges we won’t give play to what Satan wants to influence us with. We free ourselves of negative thoughts that can break our peace with God and others and ourselves. We have the blessing of a calm serene man they can focus on what the Holy Spirit has to offer. We have to quit worrying about how someone else is going to view us, i.e. if they’re going to except our apology or if they’re going to except us in their social class. We have to realize peace with God matters most. We also need to know that we are not too worry about someone getting what they deserve, if it’s to happen then God will do it. I know that’s a hard thing to except because we want to see the one suffer who has wronged us. It’s all about not having animosity towards anyone, and it will break Satan’s nagging accusations about how he wants us to feel we are entitled to some form of retribution. Overall there is a sincere Goodwill that I think we should have towards all people. We cannot be children of God and not see how our Father sees his other children.

We are to make every effort to make peace with others & not get caught up in disputes & altercations with others. In order to do this we need the power to overcome which comes from the peace of God within.

I love Romans 14:19. If we want peace we have to pursue things that bring peace. What brings peace? God! God offers the gift of peace, but Paul tells us that in order to have peace we have to pursue God. The eye-opening thing for me is that we have to be intentional in our pursuit of Christ, and in that pursuit, He will honor our relationships with other people by bringing peace in those relationships.

I needed the reminders of what Bro Darrell and Steven Roberts said, that peace is not a technique but a gift of grace and that we must be intentional about the pursuit of Christ. Peace is inside me and it is a fruit of the Spirit . I only have to yield to that peace inside of me through Jesus. He will honor my pursuit of Him and work out in my life that peace. One of my greatest needs every minute and hour of these days is to be able to yield to the peace Jesus gave me and to pursue Him. I am so glad I saw these posts. Thank you.

Peace with People, sometimes means forgiving when we really don’t want too! “We are to forgive just as the Lord has forgave us” Col 3:13 . Letting going of anger, hurt, bitterness, it good for your soul!

You can only control what you can control, and you can control your relationships with other people and how you treat them.

It is really easy to live at peace with peaceable people, people who are mannerly and kind, and make an effort to do the right thing. But for most people “turning the other cheek” would be easier for a physical attack than an emotional or verbal one. It is human nature to retaliate, to defend ourselves, to justify our decisions. We are called to be the peacemakers. Yet, when someone brings an accusation against us that hits too close to home (our family, our ministry, our church) we are quick to defend our decisions. Conflict requires two sides.There’s a time to fight, but sometimes the easiest way to avoid conflict and to keep peace is usually to shut your mouth. To give no response. We are encouraged by the Word to live in peace, as far as it depends on you (that means it’s our choice), with everyone.

Our walk with Christ is relational. Our vertical relationship will reflect on our horizontal relationships. In other words, our peace with God will reflect in how peaceful we are with those around us. And when we are peaceful with those around us, we are more likely to draw those around us to Christ. This goes back to letting our lights shine before men, that they can Christ through us. That light, that peace we have with others is a reflection of the peace we have with God.

Living in peace is a individual choice we all have to make. It is hard at times, but Hebrews 12:14 tells us to “Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord.”

When being told your wrong and knowing without a doubt your right,
Having a peace within will keep us from quarreling with the accuser and let God bring the truth to light

This is a tough one. We all want peace in our lives but are we willing to look at ourselves, and how our words and actions affect others, and actually be the one the effect change. Often times we are the ones demanding that our way is right. Peace takes a great deal of humility.

We are ambassadors for Christ wherever we go or with whoever we are around. Our actions speak louder than words and affect those we are around. We must speak life and peace in order to draw others to Jesus. People judge us, so it is important to maintain a positive attitude rather than a negative one. The love of Jesus should be that inward light that radiates outward drawing those that need Jesus In their lives. Jesus told us to follow him, so we can lead others to him. Our world has hurting people that are looking for peace, so our mission is to be lights in the dark world….peacemakers.

The easiest way to make pease is to remove yourself from the equation. Approach each situation with a WWJD attitude and leave pride and selfishness at home. Always pray first and continually.

Making peace with others and holding fast to your own healthy boundaries is such a difficult balance. The difficulty of it makes it even more important to stay in the Word and hold tight to what it teaches. Unfortunately there are people who would take advantage of us trying to be peacemakers. We have to determine what we need to do to make and have peace ahead of time as much as we can so we know where the boundary is and how to maintain it in a Christ-like way.

Jesus was blatant when He said, “Blessed are the peacemakers…”. In other words, Jesus said we will experience closeness with God when we handle conflict by pursuing peace.
Not only that, Jesus says we should work through conflict with our brothers and sisters before we engage in an act of worship to God (Matthew 5:23-25). Jesus puts the emphasis on loving our neighbor before we worship, because working toward peace and loving people well is an act of worship. God doesn’t want our hands lifted high in song if we haven’t gotten our hands dirty seeking peace with the person we’re fighting with.
