   The peace of God should act as an umpire in our hearts. If we are in doubt of anything, We should ask ourselves the questions: “Does it make for peace? Or “would I have peace in my heart if I went ahead & did it?

   This verse is especially helpful when seeking guidance form the Lord. If the Lord wants you to go a certain way He will most assuredly give you peace about it. If you do not haqve that peace, you should not proceed.

   Christ has called us to enjoy His peace, both as individuals & in church. Do not overlook the importance of the latter part of this verse: To which you were called in one body. One way in which we could enjoy peace would be to live in isolation of all other Christians. But this is not God's purpose for us. God's intentions were that we should gather together in local church buildings. Living with other Christians may try our patience at times, yet, God in this way can develop virtues in the Christians life which He could not produce in any other manner. So we should not shirk our responsibilities in the local church, nor give them up when we are annoyed or provoked. Rather, we should seek to live compatibly with our fellow believers & help them in all we do & say.

 

   And be thankful. This is repeated over & over again in Paul's writings , there must have been a good reason: The Spirit of God must consider a thankful spirit very important. And we believe that it is! <> important not only for a person's spiritual life, but for his physical welfare as well.

Doctors have found out what the Scriptures have taught through the years <> that a cheerful, thankful attitude of mind is beneficial for the body, & that worry, depression, & complaining spirits are definitely harmful to one's health. Mostly we think of thankfulness as something that determines our immediate circumstances, but Paul shows us here that it is a grace to be cultivated. We are responsible to be thankful. Of all the people of the world, we have the most for which to be thankful (Deuteronomy 33:29). The fault is not in the lack of subject matter, but in our own selfish hearts.
