Peacemakers


A freind will hold you up, when you can't
 
The love of God is the greatest gift given through the redemption of the death of His Son on the Cross. This redemption was for whole world; even those who seem to be lost, mean, and the worst of sinners, like you and i were at one time. But now, by the grace of God, we have been saved from the sins of the world. But what about those who are still coming? This is where we need to take hold of the truth that is in Jesus Christ and stand firm, resisting the desires of the flesh to argue and quarrel over nonsense. You may say, "This person needs to know that unless he repents he will go to hell, and i need to correct him." That is not your job to bring people into the kingdom, but to help them get there by showing them acceptance with the reaching hands of Christ in you.   God has planted the seed of His love in you and it remains there forever; the only way His love can be worked out is by allowing God to do His work through you by allowing these people in your path so that by the work of the Holy Spirit, He may draw the elect to His Son. James speaks of two kinds of wisdom.
 
James 3:13  Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show it by his good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. (Fear of the Lord, knowing that His Presence fills the earth, acknowledging Him in all you say and do.) 14But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. 15 Such "wisdom" does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, of the devil. 16 For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.
17But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. 18 Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvent of righteousness.
 
God grant you this gift of His unfailing love, the gift of mercy, a gentle spirit, loving and submissive in all your deeds to the glory of His Name. That through endurance and humility you may sow the seed of love to the elect, even as you wait patiently on the giver of all these, that is in Christ Jesus.
Peace, mercy, and grace to you through the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. Amen
