Shalom (Peace) is a significant word in our faith as Christians, as Jesus Christ our Lord saviour ministry and preaching was all about peace .
The intention for the birth of Jesus Christ was for the purpose of peace in the world. The significance of unity in the church is the manifestation of the beauty of all nations been one family in faith and peace in our Lord Jesus Christ.
Well said, that the purpose of Jesus birth is to bring peace to the world, but how do we implement Jesus teaching of the significance of unity and peace ? For many factors has hindered the unity of the world because we focus more on what differentiate us than what unite us, we tend to dominate the weak and poor and exploit and use their weaknesses to our advantage.
We have to look at the benefit of world peace for us to understand how we can implement it in our life and the world.
For happier are the peacemakers for the will be called the children of God. When kingdom live in unity the receive favours and blessings from God. To the peacemaker God promised that the goodness and mercy of the Lord shall follow him all the days of his life.
The blessing and promise of the Lord to the peacemaker will last forever more, for such consideration and sacrifice is abundantly rewarded and recognised by the Lord.
Their is no peace and love in the world without forgiveness in Jesus Christ. For Jesus Christ was able to forgive those that wrongfully accused and nailed him on the cross as he see them as been ignorant with lack of foresight and understanding of his teachings.
