Be a Peacemaker

Love transforms hate.

Acts 7:58

They threw him out of the city, and began to stone him. The witnesses laid down their cloaks at the feet of a young man named Saul.

+++

Stephen, the first Christian martyr, was accused of blasphemy…thrown-out and stoned to death by the people who thought they were following God!

And the man complicit in this crime, Saul, became an infamous persecutor of Christians…that is until he was later transformed through a mystical encounter with the risen Christ and became one of his most famous followers…St. Paul.

Good thing another supposed “follower of God” didn’t kill him before he could change.

Whatever you have done in the past…God continues to love you.

That love is unconditional.

And the person who seems the most despicable to you now…is equally loved by God!

God wants to transform that person as well.

Perhaps you could be God’s agent for that transformation?
