      The result of conflict resolution is peace, and peacemakers will be called “children of God.” They will reflect the divine character in their actions. God is the God of peace (1 Thessalonians ) and we show ourselves to be his children when we seek to make peace in the workplace, in the community, in our homes, and in the whole world.   The seventh beatitude is the hardest of all to expound ("Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God," Matthew ). The difficulty lies in determining the precise significance and scope of the word peacemakers. The Lord Jesus does not say, "Blessed are the peace-lovers," or "Blessed are the peace-keepers," but.

      Christians are called to be peacemakers. Andrew Fulford, in his excellent essay in this issue, notes the pacifist preference for the red-letter bits of scripture including, above all else, the Sermon on the Mount (Mt. 5). Pacifists will probably agree that of all the Beatitudes of Jesus, the call to be peacemakers has a unique muscularity. Nevertheless, peacemaking was a key component in the Mennonite-Catholic Dialogue, as indicated by the title of the quinquennial report, "Called Together to Be Peacemakers" (3) (C.T.B.P.), a title not without its critics, precisely because of the ethical tilt it appears to give the whole document, obscuring much else of importance.

      Question: "What does ‘blessed are the peacemakers’ mean?" Answer: Matthew is part of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount in which He says, "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God." The Greek word translated "peacemaker" is used in only one other place in the New Testament, in a slightly different form. To study this Beatitude, we will go to the Old Testament book of Esther, and see the Godly Christian character she demonstrated. Blessed are the Peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. Matthew , KJV. Esther was one of the most beautiful women in the Bible. As a matter of fact, she was so beautiful, that the Persian King, Ahasuerus.

Peacemakers, not Peacekeepers. Matthew – Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. Today I am going to outline the difference between peacekeeping and peacemaking. In the above scripture, the Bible calls us peacemakers, not peacekeepers. There is a huge difference between keeping peace (peacekeeping) and making.

Nevertheless, peacemaking was a key component in the Mennonite-Catholic Dialogue, as indicated by the title of the quinquennial report, "Called Together to Be Peacemakers" (3) (C.T.B.P.), a title not without its critics, precisely because of the ethical tilt it appears to give the whole document, obscuring much else of importance.

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.” Matthew Conflict, and the resultant need for peacemaking, goes as far back in human history as Cain, son of Adam and Eve, who killed his brother Abel. Peacemakers will be called the children of God because their lives will reflect the character of God, just as children reflect the image of their parents.

They will look like their Father. They don’t stop at loving peace. They put in the self-sacrificing work to make peace – just like their Father (John ).

But the attainment of peace may not come. Romans is very important at this point. There Paul says, “If possible, so far as it depends upon you, live peaceably with all.” That is the goal of a peacemaker: “If possible, so far as it depends on you.Welcome to Peacemaker Ministries!

Let’s walk the path of a peacemaker together. Our relationships with God and each other are key to building healthy marriages, families, churches, workplaces, and communities.
