April 28, 2013 Sermon Summary
Having “peace with all people” and living in “holiness” are the two things that Christians should “pursue”.◆To live in holiness, we don’t need to make any wall around us. Instead, having “God as Number One” in our hearts, we should become a testimony and spread this lifestyle to the people around us.◆Just as it’s written, “Pursue holiness, without which no one will see the Lord” (Hebrews 12:14, NKJV), we must live putting God’s affairs first, and by so doing, people around us will come to know the Lord God.◆I believe that by living in holiness, in other words, by putting God as the God of our life, we can bring true peace into this world, into human relationships. And the opposite is true, too. There is no holiness in a life that does not pursue peace among people.
Lord God,We occasionally have to make decisions.We face troubles like choosing between God or man, the church or the neighborhood.And there is distress also in trying to have “peace with all people”.May we then become Your witnesses through our decisions and attitudes.Please use us as the salt of the earth and the light of the world. Amen.
