Passage: 2 Corinthians 13:1-14
Verse: 2 Corinthians 13:11 (NIV 2011)
Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you.
We do not need to settle; God can do it all! He is all powerful. He is able. He can restore, in us, His image, as is reflected by His Son, Jesus Christ. Too often, we can be found speaking words of criticism or discouragement toward others. May we allow the Holy Spirit to change us – to make us more Christlike. When we are In Christ, we will be of one mind – His! In Him, we can live in peace. May we have the wisdom and desire to see and act in a way that is pleasing to the Lord toward others.
