Matthew 5:9

9 “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.”

Matthew 5:9
Peacemakers are not Peacekeepers

·Peacekeepers often avoid conflict to keep the peace.

·Peacemakers embrace conflict to make peace.
17 “Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”

Romans 12:17-18, 21 (NIV)
What steps can we take to be a peacemaker?

-Take the first step

23 “So if you are presenting a sacrifice at the altar in the Temple and you suddenly remember that someone has something against you, 24 leave your sacrifice there at the altar. Go and be reconciled to that person. Then come and offer your sacrifice to God.”

Matthew 5:23-24 (NLT)

15 “If another believer sins against you, go privately and point out the offense. If the other person listens and confesses it, you have won that person back.”

Matthew 18:15 (NLT)

15 “Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church.”

Ephesians 4:15 (NLT)
How do we speak the truth in love?

Tell the truth in love during non-conflict times.
Attack the issue not the person.
-Apologize when you are Wrong.

16 “ Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.”

James 5:16 (NLT)

3 phrases that could change your relationships:
“I am sorry, I was wrong Will you forgive me?

13 “Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you”

Colossians 3:13

9 “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.”

Matthew 5:9
