Vital signs- Sunday,April 18th, 2021



“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.”

(Matthew 5:9)

 

I remember reading about a preacher boy who was in a class in a liberal college, and the professor said, “Christians ought never to have any enemies. We ought never to be controversial.” Then he said, “What we need to do is to follow the example of Jesus.”

The boy lifted his hand and asked, “If Jesus Christ was so beautifully tactful and diplomatic, how did He manage to get Himself crucified?”

Peace is not appeasement. It is a right relationship with God that leads to a right relationship with self and guides you into the right relationships with others. Literally, peace is a byproduct of righteousness. It is the righteousness of God ruling and reigning in your heart.


Read Hebrews 12:14. Are there conflicts that you can resolve by becoming a peacemaker? If so, confidently place your hand in His and bring peace.
