Tonight we reach the point in our study where we begin to start evaluating our relationships, offering forgiveness to those who’ve hurt us and making amends for the harm we’ve done to others. As we prepare to do this, we recall Romans 12:18, which reminds us “If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.”
Father, we are both comforted and encouraged by the knowledge that, in You, we can, indeed, live at peace with everyone. May we gain strength, courage and confidence from Your love, and, with You working in us, may we become “merciful peacemakers” in the lives of those who’ve hurt us and those we’ve hurt.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
