When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain, and after he had sat down, his disciples came to him.
He began to teach them, saying:
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the land.
Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied.
Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the clean of heart, for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.
Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and utter every kind of evil against you (falsely) because of me.
Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven. ” -Mathew 5:1-12
We are really fortunate to be peace lovers because we are the branches of the Vine ‘The Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ’.
We ought to keep peace in any circumstances because we all are the representatives of the Living God.
Everyone is a unique human being hence there will be differences of opinions ,thoughts and ideologies but that is acceptable so long we love humanity.
There was a time when people had thought that having enough riches and wealth would certainly ensure a long lifespan of a human being on this earth.We have enough evidences of death of poor people across the world for lack of proper treatment but the scenario has changed .Today the survival of a human being doesn’t depend on one’s wealth and riches.
It depends totally on the grace of the Living God.The grace of the Lord means total surrender to the Lord.The grace of the Lord means living in peace and harmony.
Have you ever heard that the children of a powerful King fighting battles?No,the children of a mighty king don’t need to take up weapons because the mighty soldiers fight battle on behalf of them.
If we take up weapon to fight our enemies then we insult the all powerful God of ours.That proves we have doubt in the power of the Almighty and that very moment we cease to be children of the living God.
If we resort to violence to fight those who hate us then we prove to the world the fact that our prayers and the prayers of billions of others on this earth are useless.
Jesus didn’t fight with anyone but he only did good works for the sick and ailing yet he was hated by his own people.As disciples of Christ we come to know that we are in the right track only when we find people despising us,looking down upon us and insulting us .
So the message is Peace be with you ,Peace be with everyone because God is controlling everything and we all are children of the Mighty God .He knows well; who all are our enemies and he will certainly arrange everything to make sure that we continue to remain as the Children of God.
