Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

“Pursue peace with all people…” (Heb 12:14). When we give our lives to Jesus Christ, He promises us a peace that surpasses all understanding (Phil 4:7). As people who have freely received His peace, we must turn around and share it freely with others. The easiest way to win another man to Christ is to show him the heart of Jesus. Jesus genuinely cared for everyone around Him; so should we. Jesus pursued peace with everyone He met; so should we. Are you living peaceably with your neighbors? Are you at peace with your family? We should judge a tree by the fruit it bears (Lk 6:44). Are you leaving a trail of peace everywhere you go? God’s Holy Spirit makes peace possible in any situation; it is therefore our duty to pursue peace with all people.


Father, help me to be at peace with my neighbors. Give me genuine compassion for even the most annoying people in my life. I need Your peace; please help me to strive after it constantly!
