“Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God,” Matthew 5:9.

One of the all-time favorite chapters in the Bible is found in the book of Matthew. More specifically, it is chapter Matthew 5, also known as the Beatitudes or the Sermon on the Mount. Today I would like to focus particularly on verse 9, “Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God,” Matthew 5:9.

“Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God,” (Matthew 5:8). How can we be pure in heart?

“Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God,” (Matthew 5:8).

 

In the year 1895, an American soap manufacturing company in Cincinnati, Ohio boasted of the quality of its flagship product by claiming it was “99 and 44/100 percent pure.” With such a claim, the company’s sales quickly surpassed those of its rivals.

“Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.”—Matthew 5:6.

“Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled," Matthew 5:6.

 

What is righteousness?

"Righteousness is holiness, likeness to God, and “God is love,” 1 John 4:16. It is conformity to the law of God, for “all Thy commandments are righteousness” (Psalm 119:172), and “love is the fulfilling of the law” (Romans 13:10). Righteousness is love, and love is the light and the life of God. The righteousness of God is embodied in Christ. We receive righteousness by receiving Him.
