“Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.” Matthew 5:9
Text: Matthew 5:9-12
Victor is a Christian boy who loves to show others what it means to be a Christian. One day, he saw two boys fighting during the break period. He quickly separated and calmed them down. He then went ahead to teach them the danger of engaging in sinful acts. The boys became sorry for their sins and surrendered their hearts to Christ. In this story, Victor can be described as a peacemaker and a true child of God. Children of God are peacemakers and Christ expects you to be a peacemaker like Him anywhere you find yourself whether at home, school, market, church or on the playground. You are to be an agent of peace.
There are blessings that follow peacemakers and one of it is that Christ will accept you as His child. Do you know what it means to be a child of God? It means you will have access to God’s blessings both physical and spiritual. As you go out today, be an ambassador of peace as you show sinners how to make peace with God through repentance. God will bless you richly.
Prayer for today
Lord, make me a peace maker today.
