Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God[Matthew 5v9].I know a Christian who lived near noisy neighbours,one of the neighbours effected most by the noise,was becoming very annoyed,and was
threatening to do all sorts of things, to the noise maker,things were becoming very difficult.So the Christian phoned the police,told them what was happening the police came and spoke to the noisy person,and from that time on the noise level went down.The Christian who reported the noisy neighbour,told me he saw the situation was getting out of hand,so he sought to bring peace into the situation,which he did. The Christian should be a peace maker,in the community,and dare I say so, in the church also. In a world full of so much conflict,we need more peacemakers,and in a world that is at war with God, Dr. M.L.Jones, writes,/The peacemaker is ultimately concerned about the fact, that all men should be at peace with God. That may come to know Christ, for it is only then will they be at peace with God,and it is only then will they be called the children of God./
Dear God we would ask for two things,that you would help us who are your children,be peacemakers,and that we may see people coming to be at peace
with you,through Jesus. Amen.
