The peace of Christ calls us to be peacemakers.

The 7 Minute Spring is probably the most well-known of all the mineral spring in Manitou. The 7 Minute Spring is a wonderful place to hangout being surrounded by a large park and bubbling next to a beautiful gazebo.
It is not uncommon to see people approaching this mineral spring with empty jugs and leaving with them spilling water. This is a generous spring.
Those who have been filled with the peace of Christ can pour that peace out into the lives of others by how they live.
“And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace
by those who make peace.”
James 3:18 English Standard Version
Christians ought to be peacemakers and not stumbling blocks. The gospel might be a stumbling block but the Scriptures never say that Christians ought to be the reason people do not receive Christ.
The 7 Minute Spring does what it is supposed to do; pump out water for others to enjoy. God calls Christians to be what he has redeemed us to be: peacemakers.
