It seems like animosity is all around us, on every plane of life. Politically, racially, educationally, and spiritually, disagreements can be found easily and in number.

It’s much like the virus ”“ arguments can be caught with just one breath.

“God blesses those who work for peace, for they will be called the children of God.” (Matthew 5:9, NLT)

Yet here we find in Jesus’ own words that we are called to be peacemakers, agents of peace. We are to be people who call others to wholeness and harmony with one another rather than discord.

Looking at the social times in which Jesus lived, we find there was as much tension then as there is now. His followers were hoping He would bring a new rule of power and were disappointed in discovering this was not His purpose.The times were violent even then.

One title given to Jesus is “Prince of Peace (see Isaiah 9:6). Jesus imparts His peace to our lives, changing us into His likeness so that we can become people of peace ”“ peacemakers.

In his book, The Good Life, Dr. Derwin L. Gray writes:

“Biblically and scientifically, there is only one race: the human race. The human race is made of different ethnicities …

We need peacemakers who build bridges so the body of Christ can be an ethnically unified family, bearing witness to the world of our love for one another.”

(from pages 179-180)


In this time of tensions and divisions, we can be different ”“ we can be peacemakers. I hope you will join me at Woman to Woman Ministries HERE for the rest of this post. May we be different during these days we are living. May we be peacemakers.
