Pursue peace with all men, and the sanctification without which no one will see the Lord.New American Standard Bible: 1995 update (Heb 12:14). (1995). The Lockman Foundation.
The truth of the Bible verse in Hebrews 12:14 can have a profound impact on our work lives. Many of us have experienced situations where battles at work tempt us to shut down.. Whether it's dealing with disrespectful customers, peers who ignore our suggestions, bosses who cannot see our perspective, or suppliers who don't value customer relationships, these challenges can be disheartening. Our natural inclination may be to fight back against these situations and the people behind them. However, if we truly understand the grace and mercy that Christ has provided us, we should strive to extend that same grace and mercy to others.
While it is important to offer grace and mercy, blindly doing so at the expense of others and the functioning of our teams is not acceptable. Instead, we can practically apply the teachings of this verse to our work lives. The first step is to pray for God's intervention in the situation, recognizing that we are all sinful beings in need of forgiveness. We should also remember that our sanctification comes through Christ's sacrifice. With this mindset, we can work to protect our teams and our companies from the dysfunction caused by those who seek to harm them.
Besides seeking God's guidance, we can also adopt a different approach by asking questions rather than accusing others of wrongdoing. This helps to deescalate situations and promotes understanding and resolution. It requires humility and a willingness to see beyond our frustrations. By making peace with those that frustrate us, we can create a more harmonious and productive work environment.
The benefits of this approach are far-reaching. Making peace with others not only brings personal growth and peace of mind, but it also positively impacts our companies and those who do not yet know Christ. When we choose to see others, even those who upset us, as children of God who Christ is pursuing, our perspective shifts. We see the potential for transformation and the opportunity to make a positive impact through our challenges and how we respond to them.
Today, we have the power to do something different in our words and actions. By implementing the practical applications of God's word to work, we can create a workplace that reflects the love and grace of Christ. Imagine the impact we can make when we see others as children of God, regardless of their actions towards us. Together, we have the power to transform our work lives and leave a lasting impression on those around us.
Christian business owners can make a powerful impact in their work lives, and in the lives of those around them, by applying the teachings of Hebrews 12:14. This means praying for God's intervention in times of challenge, and approaching those who may seem to be our enemies with respect and humility. Taking this action not only brings peace of mind and personal growth, but it also offers the opportunity to reach out to those who do not yet know Christ. Now is the time to see others as God's children and to use our words and actions to show them grace and mercy. Don't wait any longer - start making a difference today!
