James 3:18 (KJV)
And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.
Peace has at least three settings:
- Peace with others
- Peace with self
- Peace with God
To see righteousness come to fruition in another we must,
Have this fruit of righteousness in ourselves
That is the product of a relationship with Jesus Christ. “He hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin, that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.”
Serve the Lord and others in peace
Though the work of the believer is styled as a warfare in the New Testament, there is no place for a spirit of anger or enmity towards those we seek to convert.
That is, to be purposeful, mindful, and busy about the business of reconciling opposing parties.
In the case of the fruit of righteousness, the parties we seek to reconcile is the lost sinner with holy God.
 2 Corinthians 5:21 (KJV)
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
