BLESSED ARE THE PEACEMAKERS

BLESSED ARE THE PEACEMAKERS??

One of the most neglected and ignored Scriptures in all of Holy Writ must surely be Matt. 5:9: Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall see God.

Do you know anyone who fosters peace wherever he/she goes? On the job? In the office? On the crowded highways? In line at the grocery store? In the neighborhood? Among friends/enemies? Yet the above verse is very clear and plain, and the reward is glorious beyond this world. One of our most-sung national anthems is The Battle Hymn of the Republic. Battle hymn? A hymn that celebrates war? How contradictory is that!

Often soft-voiced peacemakers are viewed by our society as spineless wimps (and maybe some of us are), but sometimes making peace is the courageous (and Scriptural) thing to do. Or what do these explicitly clear verses mean?

1 Peter 3:4: Let your adornment be the hidden person of the heart with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.

It was said of Jesus a bruised reed he did not break, nor was His voice heard in the streets. He is meek and lowly in heart and in Him we find rest for our souls. It’s a pretty big stretch to think that He wants us to fight at the drop of a hat. Let’s do what we can to preserve the “peace that passes understanding” that He has so graciously promised.

Phil. 4:7…and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
