The final episode of our series, #NewGenesis, on the Beatitudes looks at how Jesus lived by them and died by them. To live this counter-intuitive ethic will threaten any form of government whether secular or religious. How will you live as an apprentice of Jesus now, and what will it mean for you? Enjoy!
This is the last of the Beatitudes, and Jesus ends with a bang! Blessed are those persecuted for doing the right thing. One would tend to believe that if you live in obedience to Jesus, everything will be fine. But Jesus once again turns the tables on our understanding and commands us to rejoice when we face persecution. But what IS persecution?
"Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called sons of God." This is the seventh Beatitudes and Jesus is taking the world system head-on. What does it mean to bring peace from a kingdom perspective? How different is it from the world system? In this installment of #NewGenesis, Martial digs-in a little deeper to explain how peace is not only better, its more shocking and absolutely more extravagant.
