SUMMARY OF MATTHEW 5:9-12
Blessed are the peacemakers who will be called the sons of God. The persecuted will have the kingdom of heaven. You are blessed when you are insulted. Your reward in heaven will be great. The prophets were persecuted, too.
Questions for Matthew 5:9-12
9) We have made peace per se with God by accepting his Son, Jesus, as our Savior. Therefore, we are reconciled to God. We want to help others become reconciled to God, which is why we are peacemakers.
10) I truly don’t know anyone like this. However, I would like to be better at helping others make peace with God by finding Him and Jesus. I can do this by just being open to the opportunities when they present themselves.
11) We are persecuted because we have God. Others are jealous when they see God in us and are convicted of their sins. They feel guilty over their sins, and they don’t want to feel that way; therefore, they persecute Christians. I would say I get this sometimes at work although it’s subliminal.

Jesus is our peace. Find it with him.
