Blessed are the Peace Makers

By In

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. (Matthew 5:9 ESV)


Going through the beatitudes we could see every one of them have a reward at the end. We can see peace makers shall be called sons of God.

Who is a peacemaker?

Peace makers are those that are patient with everyone, do not abhor evil in their hearts, they easily let go of wrongs done to them and also promote peace.

God is a God of peace, this is part of the nature of God. As children of God, we are to have the same traits as our father in heaven therefore we are to be peace makers. Anyone that do not promote peace but always promoting strife is not of God but of the devil.

The reason why peace makers are always blessed is because their hearts is filled with much joy and their minds at peace because they live at peace with their neighbours. They are also blessed because they are obeying the commandments of God and anyone that obeys the word of God, it is surely going to be well with that person with reference to Deuteronomy 12:28.

“Only children of God can bring the peace of knowing God to others. A person must have a real relationship with God before he or she can help someone else know God. Those who witness for Christ, share their faith with their friends, and serve others in the name of Christ are the ambassadors for peace this verse identifies (see also Matthew 10:41-42). Those who bring the wonderful message of God’s peace to the world are “peacemakers,” and Jesus calls them the “children of God.”-got question

It is a blessing to be a peace maker. Amen!
