God blesses those who work for peace, for they will be called the children of God.Matthew 5:9
There are not many peacemakers in the world today. But peacemakers is exactly what this world needs. Christians are called to be peacemakers. So what exactly does that mean? A peacemaker is not someone who just gives in to what others want, nor is it someone who gives in to other belief systems because they don’t want to make waves. Instead, this versus says a peacemaker is someone who looks for peace in the midst of the storm. When the enemy threatens to divide God’s children, a peacemaker is the bridge to help overcome the gaps that sin and discord can create. A peacemaker seeks to bring about unity so that God’s people can work toward a common goal. A peacemaker seeks all those who don’t know Christ and shares the gospel and the good news to help heal their hearts.
Are you a peacemaker or someone who desires peace? A peacemaker is driven by the peace that lives inside their hearts. So if this is something you desire, come and pray to the God of peace, that He will place peace in your heart to share with the world around you.
A Prayer to Remember
May I be a peacemaker in the midst of a world in turmoil. Help me bring peace to the world around me. Amen.
