As we continue our series on the Beatitudes, pastors Randy and Andy delve into the peacemakers and the persecuted. Peacemaking is more than peacekeeping through making nice. And while we don't suffer persecution for our faith, we can learn from those who have and do.

As they continue their deep dive into the Beatitudes, Pastors Randy and Andy talk about how the pure in heart live into their purpose. Just as a chipped cup can live into its purpose of holding coffee or tea, imperfect humans can live into their purpose of reflecting the love of God.

In discussing the Beatitudes, Pastors Randy and Andy talk about how being merciful is more than being willing to forgive sin. Mercy is caring so deeply about someone's plight that we are moved to action. We see this in the life of Jesus again and again.

Pastors Randy and Andy continue to unpack the Beatitudes. What did Jesus mean when he said the poor in spirit are blessed? Is it possible that the poor in spirit today are those who become aware of their need for loving relationships that push back against isolation and result in the appearance of the risen Christ?

Pastors Randy and Andy discuss what it means that Jesus is a sacrifice for sin. Jesus sacrificed his life for the sake of others. The apostle Paul implores us to present our bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God. Life works better if we love sacrificially in Christ-like ways.
