Pursue Peace

“Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the

Lord:” (Hebrews 12:14, NKJV)



Let’s face it, some people are hard to get along with. As much as you try, as hard

as you try, some people will, as they say, “get on your last nerve.” You know what

I’m talking about. People who seem to do everything in their power to get you to

“go off.”


Yet, the writer of Hebrews encourages us by saying we should, “Pursue peace . . .”

Pursue means we should run after it. Follow after at all cost. The word pursue

carries with it the connotation that peace will not come easy. It is something that

we have to work to obtain. Indeed, it takes work and effort to be at peace with

some individuals.


We must heed the admonition of the writer of Hebrews and remembering the rest

of this verse, “Pursue peace . . . without which no one will see the Lord.” When

we work toward and go after peace, it positions us to see the Lord working in other

areas of our lives. Remember what Jesus told us, “Blessed are the peacemakers,

for they shall see God,” (Matthew 5:9)? Do you want to see the blessings of God

in your life? Then let us PURSUE PEACE!
