Happy Friday Saints.

Matthew 5:9 “BLESSED ARE THE PEACEMAKERS, FOR THEY WILL BE CALLED CHILDREN OF GOD.”

The world we live in is often filled with conflict, division, and discord. In the midst of chaos and strife, God calls us to be agents of peace. Peacemaking is not merely the absence of conflict but the presence of reconciliation, harmony, and unity.

As followers of Christ, we are called to seek peace in all circumstances, both in our personal relationships and in the world around us.

Being a peacemaker requires humility, patience, and a willingness to listen and understand others. It involves standing up for justice, promoting forgiveness, and working towards reconciliation. It means being willing to bridge divides, heal wounds, and build bridges between people who are estranged.

Jesus Himself is the ultimate example of a peacemaker. Through His sacrificial death on the cross, He made peace between God and humanity, reconciling us to the Father and offering us the gift of salvation. As children of God, we are called to reflect His character and be instruments of His peace in the world.

When we embrace the call to be peacemakers, we not only reflect the character of God but also experience the blessings promised in the Beatitudes. We are called children of God, demonstrating our identity as His beloved and showing the world what it means to be a follower of Christ.

As we seek to bring peace wherever we go, we become channels of God’s love and grace, sharing His redemptive work with those around us.

Today, embrace the call to be a peacemaker, knowing that as you do so, you reflect the heart of your Heavenly Father and bring light into a world filled with darkness. May you seek to sow seeds of peace, love, and reconciliation in all that you do, knowing that in doing so, you will be blessed.

Have a great weekend. God bless and lots’a love,

Warren
