March 1st News- Blessed are the Peacemakers Part 3

February 27, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

Series:BE-Atitudes

This week we will continue our series on the Beatitudes found in Matthew 5:1-12.

As we listen to Jesus’ words here, we discover that he is describing a new way for us to live right-side-up in an up-side-down world.

The seventh Beatitude is found Matthew 5:9

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.

We’ve been talking about what it means to be a “peacemaker”. Two weeks ago we saw that the first step is to have peace with God through the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. When we believe this truth, we become ministers of reconciliation in the world as ambassadors of Christ (2 Cor. 5:14-21). Last week, we saw that we need to look at and then own our part in any conflict or disagreement (Matt. 7:3-5). We must acknowledge our sin and confess it to God and the one we sinned against.

This week, we will look at how we reconcile with those who have sinned against us.

To prepare, read Ephesians 4:11-15 and Matthew 18:15-20.

NEW SERVICE TIME:  10am

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

This week we will continue our series on the Beatitudes found in Matthew 5:1-12.

As we listen to Jesus’ words here, we discover that he is describing a new way for us to live right-side-up in an up-side-down world.

The seventh Beatitude is found Matthew 5:9

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.

Last week we started talking about being peacemakers. We will talk about this topic again on Sunday– because I believe we all have at least one relationship that requires peacemaking and reconciliation. This is not an easy process, but we are called to make peace with others just as God has made peace with us through Jesus.

To prepare for Sunday, read 2 Corinthians 5:14-21 and Matthew 7:3-5. In these passages we see some internal principles to move us toward being peacemakers.

NEW SERVICE TIME:  10am

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

This week we will continue our series on the Beatitudes found in Matthew 5:1-12.

As we listen to Jesus’ words here, we discover that he is describing a new way for us to live right-side-up in an up-side-down world.

The seventh Beatitude is found Matthew 5:9

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.

This is an incredibly practical, relevant, and challenging beatitude. I believe that each of us have areas in our lives where there is not “peace” in our relationships with others. As I’ve thought about this topic, I have discovered that there is much to consider. Because of that, we will spend the next 3 weeks looking at what biblical “peacemaking” looks like. I believe that we will be able to implement what we learn immediately.

This week, we will see some foundational principles necessary for us to live as “peacemakers”. To prepare, read Genesis 50:14-21 to see an example of a peacemaker at work and 2 Corinthians 5:14-21 to see our call to be a peacemaker.

I also want to remind you that we have combined our Sunday service with Faith Community Church for the next few months as their pastor, Troy Smith, is on a sabbatical.  If you remember, we did this at the end of the summer for a month as well. The big change for us is that our service time will be moved back from 9:15am to 10:00am.

NEW SERVICE TIME:  10am

Looking forward to Sunday!

As we listen to Jesus’ words here, we discover that he is describing a new way for us to live right-side-up in an up-side-down world.

The sixth Beatitude is found Matthew 5:8

Blessed are the pure in heart,  for they will see God.

What does it mean to be “pure in heart”? Join us as we ponder that question.
