Building Bridges

Are you a peacemaker? During the Sermon on the Mount Jesus Christ said, “Blessed are the peace- makers, for they will be called Sons of God (Mt 5:9) . A peacemaker brings together two groups that have been divided and reconnects them through mediation and resolution. We all know the conflict that can arise on game day. The ultimate peacemaker is Christ Him- self who by His sacrifice on the cross and resurrection from the grave bridged the divide between God and man. When you become a Christ follower, you become a peacemaker in His mold and truly are forever called, a “Son of God Gal 3:26 . Remember, harmony between nations, and accord between men rests in peace with God. Christ has made us a divine peace offering and extended the olive branch. Grateful acceptance is up to us.

“For He himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in His flesh the dividing wall of hostility.” Eph 2:14

Do you have peace with God?
