Verse of the Day

Hebrews 12:14

Work at living in peace with everyone, and work at living a holy life, for those who are not holy will not see the Lord.

Hebrews 12:14

A Holy Life

A life of strife is a difficult life. Instead, you should live as someone who wants to make peace with others and live in the holiness of God. This is the exact definition of peace. We work to live a holy life so that we can be at peace with others and with the Lord. This does not mean we work for our salvation, but instead we live a life of peace because of the transforming work God has done in our lives.

Holiness means without blemish or devotion to something according to One of the greatest ways we demonstrate holiness in our lives is how we act with others. If we live at peace with others, we will experience the holiness of God. Everything we do should be to experience the holiness of God.

A Prayer to Remember

Dear Lord,
Thank you for saving me and being patient with me when I fail you. Give me the patience I need to extend forgiveness to others so I can be pleasing to you. Amen.
