“Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace,” Ephesians 4:3 says. It is important as Christians to be peacemakers. Jesus was a peacemaker. See, Christ holds everyone together in perfect unity with his peace. While the enemy pursues us and longs to bring strife into our lives, our families and our churches, Jesus helps us remain peaceful through the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Peace is the opposite of strife, a peacemaker is someone who is always looking toward the good of others and not seeking to cause ripples and someone else’s life.
Imagine what would happen if we began making an effort to keep ourselves united in our families, our churches, and our communities. God could do some amazing things! The end goal is always to bring people to Christ. So when we are unified, we are able to bring the Gospel to the people around us!
