Inspirational, Uplifting and Encouraging Bible Verses: Colossians Chapter 3: Hang On, Help is on the Way
Makes perfect sense, at least the peace part of it. Christ association and “members of one body” we will get to in a second.
Peaceful conduct would seem the goal, outside of situations where an unreasonable person or group forced you into self-defense mode.
How does Christ fit into the mix? Well, let’s consider a situation. Let’s say I was really mad at my wife, felt she was being entirely unreasonable. At about that time, a strong drive came on to put my foot down and let her know about it. Justified or not, I am aware that the end result will be exacerbation of an already tension filled scenario. So I stop, detach and call out to the Lord. Ask Him to help out. A few minutes later, she walks in and says she is sorry for being a witch. Not quite as sorry as I would have been for being a tyrant. The situation has been successfully diffused and all is well.
So that is the Christ part, subject to whether or not one believes in Him. His Gospel claiming a body here on earth, comprised of a network; a family of believers. One benefit of club membership, we have direct access to the Guy in charge and can call on Him anytime for help.
