A peacemaker is filled with God’s peace in Christ

Dustin, who writes a blog called His Peace Upon Us that seeks to converse with Muslims, wrote a guest post at Desiring God that tried to define what a peacemaker is.  I thought he did pretty well:

A peacemaker is someone who experiences the peace of God (Philippians 4:7) because he is at peace (Romans 5:1) with the God of peace (Philippians 4:9) through the Prince of peace (Isaiah 9:6), who, indeed, is our peace (Ephesians 2:14), and who therefore seeks to live at peace with all others (Romans 12:18) and proclaims the gospel of peace (Ephesians 6:15) so that others might have joy and peace in believing (Romans 15:13).
