March 1st News- Blessed are the Peacemakers Part 3

February 27, 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.

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.


Looking forward to Sunday!


Grace and peace,
