SCRIPTURE: Blessed are the peacemakers:
for they shall be called the children of God.
Matthew 5:9 – KJV
The peacemakers are called children of God simply because they have been given new hearts through Jesus and are reflecting the peace of God as they are made more and more like Him. Their eternal reward for following Jesus and emulating the peace of Christ is to be welcomed into the family of God. D.A. Carson in his interview with desiringGod says it like this.
