Do you want to have a closer relationship with Jesus?
Hebrews 12:14 states, “Pursue peace with all men, and the sanctification without which no one will see the Lord.”
This verse tells us two things we must do to see Jesus, pursue peace and sanctification. To pursue is to run after or chase, which is saying you would do anything to obtain it, what this means is for you to be the one to make peace in all conflicts.
Sanctification is the process of being made holy. To pursue holiness is to do whatever you can to be like Jesus, learning to live out His principles. Jesus is saying if you make these two areas of great importance to you He will in turn show Himself to you.
Father, help us to be the first to bring peace and to live out Your principles shown to us in the Bible. In the name of Jesus, amen
