What is a peacemaker like? A peacemaker is not passive. Does that surprise you? Kent Hughes sums it up this way: “These two qualities of the peacemaker — honesty about the true status of peace and a willingness to risk pain in pursuing peace — anticipate the next quality, which is a paradox: the peacemaker is a fighter. He makes trouble to make peace. He wages peace.” Do not misunderstand. The peacemaker does not have a license to kill but refuses to accept a cheap peace. The ultimate peacemaker is Jesus Christ. No one can be a true peacemaker until they have found God through Jesus Christ. This is the last beatitude that describes the character of the disciples of Jesus Christ.
