Washington DC is home to embassies from nearly 200 countries around the world. From Cameroon to Kyrgyzstan, skilled ambassadors come to build peaceful relations with the most powerful country on earth.

However, the gospel has the power to make peace better than hundreds of the best diplomats found on Embassy Row. That's because Jesus is a peacemaker.

The Bible says, "He came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near." He also "destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility." Jesus is the one and only Divine Diplomat who said, "Blessed are the peacemakers, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven" (Matthew 5:9).
