This Week's Sermon: Pastor Mark Waters
Finding Your Missing PEACE – Matthew 5:23-24
When we talk about our Father in Heaven, He wants to adopt us and give us peace. Matthew 5:9. If you want to be happy, you need to be a peacemaker.
1) Misconceptions about Peacemaking. a) it’s not avoiding the conflict (or you’re a coward) b) It’s not appeasement (or you’re a doormat).
2) Why be a Peacemaker? Because unresolved conflict: a) blocks my fellowship with God - I John 4:20-31, 1:3-4. – IF we can’t have a vertical relationship with God, how can we have a horizontal relationship with people? b) Prevents answered prayers – I Peter 3:7. c) Hinders my happiness – Job 18:4.
3) How to Become a Peacemaker.
P: Plan a peace conference – Matthew 5:23-24.
E: Empathize with others and their feelings – Philippians 2:4,
A: Attack the problem, not the person – Proverbs 15:1, Ephesians 4:29. You can only solve your issue, not their's. When your voice is getting louder and louder, remember Proverbs 15:1 and lower your voice!
C: Cooperate as much as possible – Romans 12:18, James 3:17. Be a bridge builder, not a bridge destroyer. Plant seeds of peace and reap goodness.
E: Emphasize reconciliation, not resolution – II Corinthians 5:18, Colossians 3:15. Agree to disagree.
So bury the hatchet, but not in your brother’s back!
Are we happy to be Peacemakers?
