Let the peace of Christ rule in your heart!

Colossians 3:14-15
Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body, you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful.
The virtues spoken of by the apostle Paul in the previous verses are all summed up in love. Mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, patience, and forgiveness are all held together by love. We are called to live in peace and in unity and to meet one another’s needs in love. The bible says that God’s gift of peace is a peace which passes all understanding. When we let this peace reign in our hearts, we will not act out in rage or anger and will always be thankful, as it reads in:
1 Thessalonians 5:18 – give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
