“Blessed [spiritually calm with life-joy in God’s favor] are the makers and maintainers of peace, for they will [express His character and] be called the sons of God.” (Matthew 5: 9, Amplified Bible)
What a joy and an honor to be a peacemaker! Jesus assures us here that to be actively engaged in bringing peace to others is a rich blessing.
As we recognize ourselves as the children of God, we naturally want to and can express those qualities that are unifying, calming, comforting, peace-bringing. We are able to fully utilize God’s powerful Spirit within us and to make a difference in the world around us. We can confidently live our lives bearing witness to the fact that we are all brothers and sisters, born of God, One in Spirit and in Love.
And acknowledging that mission to unify and to harmonize, we can’t help but feel the blessing that is amplified in this verse: spiritual calmness with life joy in God’s favor. Making and maintaining peace brings us that tranquility within, that joy at being and doing what we were made to do as the sons and daughters of infinite Love.
