Beatitudes 8-Blessed are the peacemakers and the persecuted
Persecution is a fact of life for anyone who puts the rest of the beatitudes into action, who seeks to be Christlike in daily life.
It’s not you that people say evil against and seek to persecute –
It’s actually the reality of the kingdom of God that people are rubbed up the wrong way by. In that case, being a peace-maker is so important.
