Daily Focus: Peacemakers and Jesus’ Compassion

Jesus was a peacemaker and He loved peacemakers. Yes, He could stir up righteous indignation and passion from time to time. However, Jesus longed for peace. For example, “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. ”Peace is also an important fruit of the Holy Spirit. Love and compassion are significant characteristics of God the Father and Jesus His Son as it should be in His followers

Scripture:

Matthew 5:9 (NIV)
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.

James 3:18 (NIV)
Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness.

Psalm 34:14 (NIV)
Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.

Psalm 122:6-8 (NIV)
6  Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May those who love you be secure.
7  May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels.”
8  For the sake of my brothers and friends, I will say, “Peace be within you.”

Prayer:

Lord Jesus, let us (them) be PEACEMAKERS. May You empower us to be HUMBLE, and to hunger and thirst for RIGHTEOUSNESS, to be full of mercy and have much love and compassion for others like You, Jesus, in Your Mighty and Powerful Name we pray. Amen
