“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.”
Do these words have a familiar ring?
Messiah expounded some of His strongest teachings in what we call the Sermon on the Mount.
Matthew 5:9 “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.”
Today’s question: How aptly and fittingly do these words of Christ describe you and me today?
Why is our awesome Eternal God called “the God of peace” in the Holy Scriptures? (Romans 15:23).
What is required of you and me if we are to be called a “peacemaker”? What is the connection between peacemaking and our future in the Kingdom of God?
