II Timothy 2:22 GW Stay away from lusts which tempt young people. Pursue what has God's approval. Pursue faith, love, and peace together with those who worship the Lord with a pure heart.
It is interesting to me that the passage doesn't say "be" faithful, loving, peaceful. It says pursue these things. They don't just happen. We have to actively cultivate and incorporate them into our lives. But we can't do it on our own.
Faith, love, peace starts in God's heart. Only as we have a foundation in Him will our hearts be pure that we can pursue.
There is no peace without the Prince of Peace. Without Him all peace initiatives will fail.
