Prescription For Peace

Key Verse

“For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace and ensue it” (1 Peter 3:10, 11).

Text — 1 Peter 3:8-11


It was Harold Macmillan, former British Prime Minister who said, “Jaw, jaw is better than war, war.” He meant that it is better to talk things over than to fight.  History also records wars that have been started because of wrong speaking. A classic case is narrated in Judges 12:4, “Then Jephthah gathered together all the men of Gilead, and fought with Ephraim: and the men of Gilead smote Ephraim, because they said, Ye Gileadites are fugitives of Ephraim among the Ephraimites, and among the Manassites.” So, speaking the right words is even more crucial than just speaking.

The heart of the natural man is filled with anger, hatred, bitterness, and jealousy. The verdict of heaven is, “There is no peace for the wicked.” The words that proceed from him or her are peace-shattering, such that conflict persists, instead of harmony. Sin makes one a peace-breaker but Jesus makes one a peacemaker. He is the Prince of Peace; when He comes into any willing heart, His peace enters in and then words of peace flow out of the mouth.


Jesus makes one a peacemaker


Silence is golden when the troublemaker is around.

Prayer for today

Dear Lord, reign in me with your peace. Amen.
