Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men. If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men.
-So far we have looked at Biblical covenants between God & man; & Biblical covenants between two or more parties. We now focus on covenant application as the will of God in our daily lives. First is the covenant of peace which was initially given as a promise to the children of Israel & is documented in Num 25:12, Ezek 34:25 & 37:26 & Isa 54:10. Jesus brought us peace so that we may remain encouraged in Him & follow His divine will when He says “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you” (Jn 14:27). The Holy Spirit is the seal to the covenant of peace for He freely gives us this fruit of peace that we refrain from vengeance, do good to others & willingly make peace with everyone. In recognizing the aspects that always cause conflict, James advices us to be swift to hear, slow to speak & slow to wrath (Jam 1:19). Jesus the Prince of peace therefore calls us to make covenants of peace with everyone through the impartation of the Holy Ghost that we may always be vessels of peace here on earth.
Lord make me an instrument of Your peace. Where there is hatred; let me sow love, where there is injury; pardon, where there is doubt; faith, where there is despair; hope, where there is darkness; light, where there is sadness; joy. Oh Divine Master; grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console, to be understood as to understand, to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, & it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen
