RCCG THIS WEEK
Have you ever seen a father and son who look so much alike that people “it is easy to see he is that man’s son!? when people look at your life, do they say “this boy or girl is a child of God?” They may, if you are at peace with others, and you are a peace maker.
PROGRESSION OF EVENTS:
A. The memory verse says you should live peaceably with all men. Our lord Jesus Christ is the Prince of Peace so as a child of God, your life must be like that of your father. So to be
peaceful, or be at peace with others is an evidence of whose child you are.
B. In Matthew 5:9 Jesus said, “Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called children of God”
Who is a Peacemaker?
A peacemaker is someone who maintains peace between people who are enemies. Matthew 5:47 says “If you salute(greet) only your brethren, what more are you doing than others?
Hebrew 14:12 says “live in peace with all men and be Holy” and be Holy” that is to say you should not hold grudge with any one because
bitterness can take the place of peace and render you unholy.
C. Matthew 5:9b Jesus said “for they shall be called the sons of God”. The people who are sons of God have the character of their heavenly father.
God sent Jesus Christ to the world to reconcile the world to him. Not counting our trespasses against us. He sent Jesus his only begotten
son John 3:16a. He loves you and me so much that he gave His precious blood on the cross so that we can have our sins forgiven. Jesus made peace by His blood on the cross. It’s now left for you to make a decision that you want to be safe from the punishment of your sin by personally trusting in the lord Jesus to save you.
Ephesians 1:7 says “In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins”. He willingly suffered and died then he came alive again. Jesus Christ’s death is God’s way of making peace and reconciling with the world.
D. Peace is one of the fruits of the spirit Galatians 5:21-22, those who bear the fruit of peace are sons of God. God wants you as a child of His to be at peace with people around you and to be a peacemaker by praying for your enemies, and seeking to make friends with them. As we learn in today’s memory
verse Romans 12:18 “If possible, so far as it depends upon you live peaceably with all men.
CLIMAX: Being at peace with God and others will bring you great happiness James 3:17-18
CONCLUSION: The true mark of the sons of God is their longing to make peace with their enemies. Peacemakers have the character of their Heavenly Father because He is the God of peace. Romans 16:20.
CHALLENGE: If Jesus is in you. God wants you to make peace, work for peace and sacrifice for peace because what gives a clear mark of the sons of God are those who seek to make peace. Make it a point of duty to always live at peace with your friends and all. Hebrews 12:14
INVITATION: You cannot be a peacemaker until you become the son of God. Believe in Jesus today John 1:12.
