peace, quiet, and no drama...

March 16, 2012

1 Timothy 2:2 …that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life,

Here MacArthur breaks things down a little bit. “Quiet” refers to the absence to problems on the outside, maybe problems that we have a hand in creating. “Peaceable” refers to the absence of problems on the inside, within ourselves. We, as believers, are not called to live in what I’ll just call “drama”; you know what I’m talking about. We are not called to live in a bubble of constant agitation; either of our own creation or someone else’s! As the church, we are the representation of Christ, we are His bride. This is a great responsibility. That we should take great care to live out correctly. It’s easy to get caught up in what “we” want, what “we” think should happen, or how “we” have been wronged, but the fact is “we” shouldn’t ever enter into it. Our focus should be in what God wants, and if that is our main objective, our only one, we will live “…a quiet and peaceable life.”
