Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Thoughts on Today’s Verse

Man seeks after empty happiness and longs for peace in a world at war, but the child of God, who has been saved by grace through the sacrificial work of Christ on Calvary’s cross gains more than happiness, for He is blessed to have peace with His God through the forgiveness of sin and is enabled to receive that peace that passes understanding as he remains in right relationship with Him, through the Lord Jesus Christ.

There is a blessing that is pronounced on peacemakers.. and godly peace-makers are indeed blessed folk, seeking to live peaceably with all men and actively intervening to make peace, when strife and animosity raises its ugly head. As God directs, they follow after peace without any spiritual compromise, while binding up the broken peace of others.. which is caused by depression, disease, divorce and distress. Peacemaking is not the attitude that cries “peace at any cost, so let’s not rock the boat”, nor is the one who selfishly seeks their own well-being with little interest in the distress; discomfort or dissension in the lives of others.

Blessings of peace come from the Father of peace, and the blessedness of peacemaking rests on the Prince of Peace, Who has become both founder and finisher of all our peace, and which is imparted to us by the Spirit of Peace.  May we who have made peace with God by believing on His Son as Saviour, continue our Christian journey by walking in spirit and truth, maintaining that blessed fellowship and peaceable communion with God our Father, through Him Who is our one and only mediator:- Jesus Christ.

My Prayer

I thank You Father that I have peace with You through the death of Jesus, my Saviour. I pray I may be a peacemaker in the place that You have put me, by maintaining sweet fellowship with You and by sharing the gospel of grace with all I may meet. May I be used as Your instrument of godly reconciliation and peacemaking, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN
