Col. 3:15 “And let the peace of Christ arbitrate in your hearts, to which also you were called in one Body; and be thankful.”




When the peace of Christ is enthroned in our hearts to be the unique umpire within us, we shall have peace with God vertically and with the saints horizontally. We praise the Lord that we are enjoying peace, and in this peace the church life as the new man is preserved! As the peace of Christ presides in our hearts, the renewing of the new man takes place continually. If we stay under the ruling of the enthroned peace of Christ, we shall not offend others or damage them. Rather, by the Lord’s grace and with His peace, we shall minister life to others. The oneness in a local church and among the churches is not maintained by human endeavoring. It is main tained only by the arbitrating peace of Christ…All the churches and the recovery as a whole are under the arbitrating peace of Christ. In us Christ is the supplying grace and the arbitrating peace.


We need to allow the arbitrating peace of Christ to be enthroned in us first…If instead of praying for yourself to be ruled by the Lord, you ask Him to rule others, the Lord may say, “Let Me first set up My throne in you. Let Me rule you, subdue you, and make the final decisions for you.” If we allow the enthroned peace of Christ to arbitrate in our hearts, our married life, family life, and church life will all be preserved in oneness. ( Life-study of Colossians, pp. 564-566)
