Peacemakers

VIEWS: 3 PAGES: 14

									       Matthew 5:9

Blessed are the peacemakers, for
  they will be called the sons of
               God.
                Isaiah 26:2,3
 Open the gates that the righteous nation may
  enter, the nation that keeps faith. You will keep
  in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast,
  because he trusts in you.
 In times of trouble we must continually strive to
  keep our minds turned to the Lord in prayer,
  trust and hope.
 This is difficult because of the demands on our
  time and our imagination.
             Proverbs 3:13-17
   Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, the
    man who gains understanding, for she is
    more profitable than silver and yields
    better returns than gold. She is more
    precious than rubies; nothing you desire
    can compare with her. Long life is in her
    right hand; in her left hand are riches and
    honor. Her ways are pleasant ways, and
    all her paths are peace.
                 Wisdom
 Sophia-the insight into the true nature of
  things.
 Phronesis-the ability to discern modes of
  action with a view to their results.
                Isaiah 54:10
   Though the mountains be shaken and the
    hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for
    you will not be shaken nor my covenant of
    peace be removed, says the Lord, who
    has compassion on you.
                 C.S. Lewis
   When I invited Jesus into my life, I
    thought he was going to put up some
    wallpaper and hang a few pictures. But He
    started knocking out walls and adding on
    rooms. I said I was expecting a nice
    cottage, but he said “I’m making a palace
    in which to live”.
         Giants-Pamela D. Curtis
   Giants looming round about,
   Taunting, spitting fear and doubt
   Challenging God’s ways and words
   With frightful boasts and vicious slurs.
   Take up arms in holy wrath,
   Confront them with a scornful laugh,
   Stand in Christ’s victorious power,
   This is the giant’s final hour.
   Struggle fiercely in the Name,
   Block the blows of guilt and shame.
   Use your sword! Cut through their lies,
   Drown their threats with triumph cries,
   Push back their clouds of doom and blight,
   Overcome in faith-fired light,
   Wielding Christ’s authority,
   Make the giants turn and flee

   Giants looming all around?
   Rise up! Fight!
   Take back the ground.
        Numbers 13:30, 14:8,9
 Then Caleb silenced the people before Moses
  and said, “We should go up and take possession
  of the land, for we can certainly do it.”
 If the Lord is pleased with us, he will lead us
  into that land, a land flowing with milk and
  honey, and will give it to us. Only do not rebel
  against the Lord. And do not be afraid of the
  people of the land, because we will swallow
  them up. Their protection is gone, but the Lord
  is with us. Do not be afraid of them.
                Malachi 2:5
   My covenant was with him (Levi), a
    covenant of life and peace, and I gave
    them to him; this called for reverence and
    he revered me and stood in awe of my
    name.
                 Reverence
   To have a healthy fear of the Lord. To
    understand who he is and what he is
    capable of doing.
    Create an Atmosphere of Peace
 Too many people are living in a state of
  subdued panic or organized confusion.
 The church often breeds a hyperactive
  body of believers who are forever on the
  go, yet they have lost their sense of
  direction.
 We are called to generate a peace in the
  hearts and lives of others.
                 Mike Bickle
   Jesus isn’t coming for a church that’s
    gritting her teeth, struggling to stay free
    from sin, secretly wishing she could
    indulge in a little immorality but abstaining
    because of being afraid of getting caught.
    No. Jesus is coming for a church
    passionately and utterly devoted to Him—
    one that is free on the inside.
                II Cor. 13:11
   Finally brothers, good-by. Aim for
    perfection, listen to my appeal, be of one
    mind, live in peace. And the God of love
    and peace will be with you.
