“Blessed Are The Peacemakers”

Categories: Gospel, Love, Peace

Jesus taught, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God” (Matt. 5.8).

Since the gospel of Jesus Christ creates peace in a world where there is none (Col. 1.13-23; Rom. 5.1; James 4.4), Christians are called to be peacemakers (Matt. 28.18-20; 2 Tim. 2.2; Acts 8.4).

Sharing the peace Christ offers with others is exclusively accomplished through the spreading of the gospel. Therefore, we must not hinder the gospel by our lack of love or peace God has called us to exemplify (Rom. 12.18; Phil. 4.7-9; Heb. 12.14). If we do not love peace, how can we expect others to obtain such? – Bryan Garlock
