“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the sons of God.” – Matthew 5:9
What if we have it all wrong? What if being a peacemaker means we actually ruffle some feathers. Turns out, that’s exactly what it means. Peacemaking isn’t for the fainthearted. It’s messy work, but it’s what we’re called to.
We’ll be spending our time looking at Matthew 5:9 and 2 Corinthians 5:17-21.
The Oxford Dictionary defines a peacemaker as “a person who brings about peace, especially by reconciling adversaries.”
Three things we can do as ministers of reconciliation:
* Love the unlovely
* Sitting with sinners
* Proclaim the Gospel
So, roll up your sleeves. It’s time to get a little messy.
