FOCAL TEXT: Matthew 5 vs 9►► “Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.~》KJV》______________________________________
GRACIOUS greetings, Cherished one. One of the treasures exude by wisdom is peace. A wise person hates violence, riots and chaos. Jesus Christ faced many oppositions from the Pharisees, Scribes, high priests and yet never fought with anyone. He never killed anyone. His words were majorly centred on love, the hope of salvation and unity. Jesus Christ during His early ministry in the popular sermon on the mount (beatitudes) spoke on peacemakers.
“Peacemakers” here is not talking about making peace with God and man, only Jesus Christ could establish peace between God and mankind (Romans 5:1). These peacemakers refer to people who make peace with their fellow neighbour. In Christianity, even though we are called into one faith, we don’t have the same level of maturity in Christ. There are instances where you won’t even agree with someone on doctrinal issues but that doesn’t mean there shouldn’t be peace between you. 2 Corinthians 13:11 says “Finally, brethren…live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.”
Romans 12:18 also says “If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all people.” People in your family, church, community, the workplace may have different views about the matters of life, but you can still live peaceably with them. Give people the space to grow in their thinking without forcing them. Peacemakers are children of God. They know peace, think peace, speak peace and live peace. Avoid questions, debates and arguments that generate conflicts, violence and hatred. The God of peace is in you so desire peace with all people and pursue it. The rich grace of our Lord Jesus Christ abounds towards you always.
Dear Father, I thank You for the fruits of the Spirit within me. I graciously make peace with all people as Your peace that passes all understanding guides my heart and mind. I eschew conflict, violence and hatred. I receive help to do this as You guide my words, thoughts and deeds with Your wisdom in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen !
Pray that God’s Spirit would keep on empowering you to live as a peacemaker to your world of contact.
You are not safe until you are saved. Believe in Jesus Christ Now, if you haven’t.
