Peacemakers

Matthew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God (KJV).

Peacemakers carry the peace of God wherever they go.  As a result, when they enter into a room, peace fills it.  Mediation is a byproduct of God’s peace residing in individuals.  Romans 8:14 tells us, “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God” (KJV).  Part of the Fruit of the Spirit is peace (see Galatians 5:22-23); therefore, the children of God bring peace with them.  Through wisdom, peacemakers sow in peace and reap righteousness, as God considers peace to be a righteous thing.  That means that a person must love righteousness in order to be a peacemaker as well.  Those who despise righteousness and love debate do not qualify (see James 3:14-16).  James 3:17-18 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.  And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace (KJV).

Those led by the Spirit love peace, and love to make the environment around them peaceful.  They love to extend peace to others, which means they desire to reconcile others unto God.  They know until people are at peace with Him, they will never have true peace.  Without it, they will not be at peace with themselves, nor find it easy to be at peace with others.  Peacemakers understand the value of forgiveness and its link to lasting peace.  They are great encouragers of people exercising forgiveness towards others and themselves.  Through forgiveness, reconciliation is possible, as well as lasting peace between individuals.

Peacemakers do not avoid fear; they run over it.  Running away from an anxious environment does not bring change to it.  Nor does avoidance mean you are at a place of peace.  In order to change the environment, a person has to engage it.  For example, if I avoid a place filled with hostility, it will still be there, even if I do not witness it first hand.  Hiding from people who make you nervous does not bring inner peace.  Finding out why they make you nervous and dealing with it in a godly manner will lead to it.  In some cases, it is a question of forgiveness, in others; there may be wounds that need healing.  Whatever the cause, a person has to come to a point where God’s peace rules in his heart (see Colossians 3:15).  As they learn to come to terms with their own issues, they help others resolve theirs, thereby leading them to peace as well.
