Blessed are the peacemakers Matthew 5:9

Where are fighting for peace!

Environmentally? Socially and culturally? In ourselves?


What kind of peace is Jesus for?

We need more than a paper treaty!

1. Peacemakers: Born out of the blood of Christ!


Without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness – Hebrews 9:22


2. Peacemakers: Grown in Gods family!


“Children of God”

God: Perfectly pure and intimately personal

“Chips of the old block” – Children of God = Children of peace


3. Peacemakers: Make peace in Evangelism

6. Why should the church prioritize evangelism?

7. What have been some of your struggles with church unity? How might you the peace of God move you to respond?
