What did Jesus say? - About peacemakers?
To be at peace with God and with one's self is a great blessing; and to be at peace with our fellowmen is also a great blessing.
"Peace ! Peace ! wonderful peace that cometh down from the Father above!"
Peace, that sense of calm and contentment, knowing all is well between us and God; that sense of assurance that there is nothing to fear, because God, our loving heavenly Father is in control.
How wonderful it would be if all men everywhere could be at peace with God through Jesus Christ, for then, and only then, can they be at peace with one another throughout the world.
Jesus said: "Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God." Mathew 5: 19.
To be a promoter of peace with God, and peace among men is a calling of God to all his children.
To point men and women and boys and girls to the Prince of Peace, the Lord Jesus Christ, for the forgiveness of sins and salvation is our duty.
"Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another." Romans 14:19.
May we who are the redeemed children of God, strive to be peacemakers so that we may be blessed of God.
