Be a Peacemaker!

Rev Enoch Thompson | JANUARY 27, 2023 | MATTHEW 5:9

KEY VERSE: Matthew 5:9 (NIV)

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.


Peace-making is one activity that the United Nations has undertaken in many parts of the world and continues to spend billions of Dollars on pursuing. The world since the Fall has been a battleground of individuals in families and in society and of nations against nations. One would have thought that with civilization advancing humans would be more peaceful, but we have become more and more at war as the years have progressed.

The Kingdom of God is here said to require citizens who are peacemakers. A peacemaker is one with a disposition to peace and quiet. It is first an inner orientation that manifests in general conduct. They are peacemakers because they have benefitted from the peace of God which came through the sacrifice of Christ on the cross and have become agents of the peace of God. Peacemakers desire, love and work for peace; they seek the preservation of peace and its restoration as quickly as possible when it is broken.

Peacemakers are blessed because they have the quiet of their inner state, something no one can take from them. Their inner disposition removes all turmoil that could spell or be the cause for various kinds of emotional diseases. Their spirits are at rest and can communicate better with God. They are children of God because they reflect the character of God, the God of peace (Phil. 4:8)


Is there any situation of confusion around you? Any situation of disagreement or sharp difference. What can you do to bring peace?


Dear God of peace, thank you for restoring me to yourself through the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Please help me to be an agent of your peace. And may I truly be a child of God. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
