Unsensibly Sensible. Peacemakers? – 8.18.19 – Rob Pilant

By August 18, 2019Messages
This Sunday, we continue our series called “Unsensibly Sensible,” where we are looking into Jesus’ teachings called the Beatitudes. This week, we talk about “Blessed are the peacemakers for they will be called the children of God,” and it seems pretty simple.  I mean who does like someone who brings peace, but as I was digging into it, I found a depth that I believe can change everything in how you follow Jesus. Join me this Sunday at 9 or 10:30am so I can show you what I found!

  • Have you ever had someone try to force you to adopt his or her perspective? How did that make you feel? Did it work? Why do you think it didn’t?
  • Please read Matthew 5:9. Why is this Beattitude a hard one for us? What is something you are really passionate about? How would you feel if someone told you that what you are most passionate about is unimportant and that your perspective on it was wrong?
  • Paul went from forcing everyone to believe his way to what we read in 1 Corinthians 9:19-23. How does someone make a shift like that? What makes this way of living so much better especially when it comes to influencing people?
  • What does Paul’s statement, “I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some” mean to you? Isn’t that compromising what we believe? Why not? How can you put it into practice?
