Sermon Preview: Blessed Now: The Peacemakers and the Persecuted

This Sunday, October 9, Pastor Spencer will preach on Matthew 5:9-12. We invite you to read the passage below in preparation for Sunday's sermon and consider the Reflection Question during your devotional time. 

‘Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.

‘Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

‘Blessed are you when people revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
— Matthew 5:9-12 (NRSV)

Reflection Question:  Our world is crying out in a loud voice for peace. How are you adding your voice and your actions to bring peace in our communities and the world?
