Continuing the topic of the beatitudes, let's look at the next three in line.
7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
Explain what these three verses mean to you.
The pure in heart refers to those who are born again. God has declared them once and for all not guilty. All too often people have a "sin-management" theology as one writer who name escapes me puts it. The believers think the cross only covers their sin up until the moment of salvation. After that they have to keep themselves saved. Nothing could be farther from the truth. We are saved once and for all.
The peacemakers are preachers. We are all called to preach.

You'll have toforgive me today. I have the fortune of having three positions and I am juggling them today. It really is nuts the amount of time I sit at the computer. I cradle my eyes from the strain. At night I sleep great. I write everything. I may be crazy busy, but I am happy.
