PEACEMAKERS : BIBLICAL REFERENCES

The word "Peacemakers" is mentioned twice in the Bible, both in the New Testement, with the first of these coming in the Gospel of Matthew. The second appears in James. Both are included below....

JAMES CHAPTER 3 (PEACEMAKER REFERENCE IN VERSE 18)

13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show it by his good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.
14 But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth.
15 Such "wisdom" does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, of the devil.
16 For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.
17 But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.
18 Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness.
