‭Hebrews‬ ‭12‬:‭14‬ NLT
“Work at living in peace with everyone, and work at living a holy life, for those who are not holy will not see the Lord.”

Peace and holiness. Here are two things that make life work and strengthen our relationship with God. Is there someone you need to make peace with? To say you’re sorry to? Is there any attitude in your heart or words from your mouth that are contrary to the character of God? To live at peace with others is not easy; that’s why it says “work.” To live a holy life is not easy; that’s why it says “work.” And yet this is not a work in our strength but the strength of God working through us. “Lord, today work in our hearts so that we may work in Your strength to be at peace with everyone and to please you. Amen.”
