February 22nd News- Blessed are the Peacemakers

February 19, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 


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.


Looking forward to Sunday!


Grace and peace,
