Passage: Matthew 5:9 Speaker: Pastor Lukus Counterman Series: Beatus - Favored by God

Length: 50 mins 23 secs Plays: 2473

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - The seventh beatitude is found in (Matthew 5:9) “Blessed are the peacemakers; for they shall be called sons of God.” Here, Jesus is not indicating that God’s favor rests on the peaceful, nor the peace-loving, but rather the peacemakers. Only when someone is at peace with God can they be at peace within. When they have peace within, then they can make peace with others. Being a peacemaker is not simply avoiding conflict or sidestepping problems, instead it refers to actively pursuing “shalom” – wholeness, health, and well-being. Are you a peacemaker? Do you minister peace to those around you? May the Lord mediate peace within us and make us ministers of peace with others.
