“Strive to live in peace with everybody and pursue that consecration and holiness without which no one will ever see the Lord.” Hebrews 12:14 Amplified
In the eleventh chapter of Hebrews we have the Hall of Faith, as it is called. All those before us who trusted in God, the old testament saints. So then Paul goes on to tell us how we can be in that Hall of Faith in the twelfth chapter of Hebrews.
The first step is to strive to live in peace with everybody, you have to want that. Sometimes that’s hard, sometimes we just give up, but if you really strive for peace, you can likely find it. Remember in striving for peace, you’re turning the situation over to God, it’s always a heart issue with Him. So though striving sounds hard, it really isn’t when you put it in God’s hands.
