Zookeepers, Housekeepers & Scorekeepers
You are listening to the sermon from 07/23/17
Faith Wesleyan Church in Rockford IL.


Scripture texts: Matthew 5:9

Synopsis: Peacemaking brings rest to troubled hearts. Peacemaking brings an end of fighting to those who are in disagreement. Peacemaking brings an un-peaceful people into relationship with God through the Gospel. Peacemakers cover the offenses of others (Proverbs 11:13). Peacemakers try to save the dignity of the wrongdoer (2 Timothy 2:22-26). The Peacemaker seeks to solve problems face to face instead of behind backs (Galatians 6:1). Peacemaking is God’s work. When we engage in it, we are doing God’s work. When we are doing God’s work, we begin to look like God. When Jesus says, be peacemakers, and be the children of God, we look like, or reflect our Father. This is one of His very best qualities! When we are being peacemakers, we’re lookin’ good, baby.
