Ever wish you could better control your anger, avoid conflict or keep your mouth shut? In this message Pastor John will be speaking about Jesus' call to be a peacemaker.

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.”
Matthew 5:9, NIV

“In peacemaking both parties become more whole, in fighting both parties diminish…”

“Do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.”
Jesus in Matthew 5:39, NIV

“Love your enemies…”
Jesus in Matthew 5:44, NIV

“I suspect he meant you must show courage – be willing to take a blow, several blows, to show you will not strike back nor will you be turned aside. And when you do that it calls on something in human nature, something that makes his hatred decrease and his respect increase. I think Christ grasped that and I have seen it work.”
Gandhi in Philip Yancey, The Jesus I Never Knew, p121

“Moral change is not accomplished by immoral means…”
Philip Yancey, The Jesus I Never Knew

“He himself is our peace, who has made the two one and destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility… this making peace… for through him we have access to the Father.”
Ephesians 2:14ff, NIV

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give as the world gives…”
