Bless This Home | Week 3
Speaker: Grant Agler
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they will be filled.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God
Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.
Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.
Live in harmony with one another.
Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone.
If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.
PEACEMAKERS TAKE INITIATIVE
When Cephas came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he stood condemned
PEACEMAKERS KEEP THEIR EMOTIONS IN CHECK
A gentle answer deflects anger, but harsh words make tempers flare.
PEACEMAKERS APOLOGIZE WHEN THEY’RE WRONG
Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.
PEACEMAKERS WEAR THEIR BIG GIRL PANTIES
Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord.
On the contrary: “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
