(KJV.) COLOSSIANS 3:12-13
(12) Put on, therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
(13) Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man has a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
KISS OF PEACE
Brethren, as chosen generation, royal priesthoods, holy community of our Father, unusual people; let us live godly lives, love one another as ourselves, forgive one another's faults, do goodwill, be charitable, with spirits of reverences, submissiveness, have patience, persevere, control ourselves when in sufferings, persecutions, and reproaches of men; know what types of people we are, live up to the standards of who we are in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; in every endeavor, let us pray, seek our Father first, his wisdom and strength, directives of Jesus Christ through the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit; receive confirmations on pathways to follow, before we make decisions, move ahead with worldly agendas.
Believers are to affect positives changes in the world of darkness, this is a true statement; however, it is a difficult task to tackle in this world, especially when the enemy knows that believers are equipped with the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit, are capable to destabilize the kingdom of darkness with words of their mouths; therefore, he troubles believers, not to focus on him, but have enmity, divisions among themselves; if believers waste time to disagree, resent with one another, a kingdom that is divided cannot hold water; to warfare, win battles, bring souls to Christ; we have to unite, be in one accord, love one another as ourselves, if we disagree, quickly agree, have common grounds, without resentments, live in peace and harmonize with one another.
Many times, believers disagree on doctrines of the scriptures, what Jesus Christ said, verses what Apostle Paul said; the bottom line is, it does not really matter, make any difference who said what; what matters to Jesus Christ is to preach the gospel in truthfulness; minister words of wisdom into the hearts of souls, encourage them to walk in godliness, inspire humanity to come unto him; leave all arguments alone; apostles Paul planted, Apollos watered, but it is only our Father that gives the increase; refer to 1 Corinthians 3; therefore, it really does not matter who know more, what matters is, we have callings to fulfill in world of darkness, account for our deeds to Jesus Christ on judgment day; therefore, let us not see ourselves as contenders, rather work together in unity for the sake of his righteousness, unite in love, in one accord, encourage, inspire one another, do his will according to understandings from the Holy Spirit our teacher; resist the devil he will flee away.
Dearly beloved, with faith, there is no mountain, insurmountable to believers, all things are possible through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; therefore, if we know who we are, what lives within our hearts, though the enemy may periodically pester with our souls, nothing will happen to our souls, for Jesus conquer the enemy by his death and resurrection; if we are in him, his spirits lives within our hearts, and are one together with him, we are more than conquerors as well, enemy attacks will not materialize in believers lives, regardless of his devises; therefore, let us not worry, be afraid or dismay over enemy attacks, our Father allows them to come our ways, to strengthen our faith in his righteousness, we are overcomers in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!
