Bible Verse for Today
“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.” (Matthew 5:9)
For one to make peace with something or somebody, that means such a person must love peace. This type of person is what we refer to as the peacemaker. It will be possible to make peace with people if what you have built-in you is the peace of God. When you have the peace of God, it becomes part of you to make peace with every other person.
Making peace is a compulsory thing for every Christian to do and in the course of doing this one must be careful to avoid getting stuck in favoritism. Peace is the nature of God. God made peace with the man by sending Jesus to come in and fill in the gap that’s between us, now we can go to Him through Christ.
The reason God made peace with us is that He loves us. Of we have love in us, to make peace will not be a problem.
The question posed by different people is that it compulsory that one makes peace every time? Is it all the problems that one can solve? Sometimes to make peace may involve lying just to make the parties involved calm but to every Christian, holding unto the truth is paramount. It will not be every time one will be making peace, if it doesn’t involve truth, no Christian can be part.
2 Timothy 2:15 “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.” Peace should involve truth and not lies, God cannot stand a that’s full of lies. In all we do today, the only thing we should learn to hold onto is should be peace and let people see that you are an ambassador of peace.
