The gospel of peace

Blessed are those who work for peace, for they will be called the children of God. Matt. 5:9

Those who work to reconcile friends, families, individuals or groups with social, political, ideological, ethnic or other differences reveal aspects of God’s own reconciling nature. He is the ultimate peacemaker. The gospel of peace tells us that Christ reconciles us to God through the cross. So now our spirits are at peace with Him while our bodies and minds are still experiencing ongoing transforming reconciliation to His nature.

Lord, help me to take Your gospel of peace into my relationships with others.
