The Mark of a Child of God

A child of God

Peaceful nature is a mark of a child of God. Matthew 5:9 says, “
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.”

Peacemakers are lovers of peace. They don't only settle fights and quarrels but they love peace in everything. 

They don't respond to criticism. They welcome the opinions of everyone whether it favors them or not.

They have a forgiving spirit. They forgive others as Christ forgave them (Matthew 6:14). 

While some people easily show aggression, they are not quick to temper. They are known for their peaceful nature.

Their love for peace is sometimes taken for granted but they find their identity in Christ and not in the actions of men. 

They are calm. They are not motivated by the crowd. They love the serenity of an environment.

The belligerents are the opposite. They are always aggressive. They hardly accept criticism. They hate good people and persecute them.

As the peacemakers are of God,  The belligerents are of Satan. 

Jesus Christ is the Prince of Peace. His followers possess the nature of peace in them. They continually enjoy the peace of Christ.
