Peacemakers Stand Up!

How many of you find it difficult to be peacemakers?? Well, Jesus said in Matt 5:9, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.” The Greek word for peace is Eirene (i-ray’-nay ) and it means security, safety, prosperity, felicity, (because peace and harmony make and keep things safe and prosperous). So, if your an impulsive person that like to keep the pot stirred unnecessarily chances are you might miss the opportunity to see God move in your life! The Msg Bible paraphrased Hebrews 12:14 in these word, “Work at getting along with each other and with God. Otherwise you’ll never get so much as a glimpse of God. Make sure no one gets left out of God’s generosity. Keep a sharp eye out for weeds of bitter discontent. A thistle or two gone to seed can ruin a whole garden in no time. Watch out for the Esau syndrome: trading away God’s lifelong gift in order to satisfy a short-term appetite. You well know how Esau later regretted that impulsive act and wanted God’s blessing—but by then it was too late, tears or no tears.” In our fallen world, peace is not an easy thing to achieve however, it can be done and our greatest example is Jesus! Despite what we did and what we continue to do to him; he still died on the cross to bring peace between God and man!
