Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the Children of God, Matthew 5:9.
Is there such a thing as a peacemaker in our world today? Seriously!
As we look around this planet, we see protests, fightings, brutality and killing. The news is full of hatred and war, and in the midst of it all Jesus is still heard saying in Matthew 5:9 “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God.”
Peacemakers calm situations—even if the situations are escalated and possibly out of their control. Peacemakers are satisfied with their life because Jesus gives them joy in God’s favor and salvation. And because of this they are clearly seen as God’s children; for who else could act this way except someone who knew that their Savior is bigger than all situations—no matter how bleak things look.
Even if a child of God dies, the peacemaker knows that all is well for eternity, for those who know Him.
Spread the good news around you peacemakers, and be happy in Jesus you children of God. And there you go.
