A Disciple’s Identity Pt. 7: Blessed are the Peacemakers
By Louie Marsh, 4-28-2021
Blessed are the Peacemakers…
9 “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. Matthew 5:9 (ESV)
When you think of a peacemaker, what comes to mind? A diplomat trying to make peace between warring parties?
Or maybe it’s you trying keep the peace in your family between certain members who are always fighting
PEACEMAKER, pēsʹmāk-ẽr: Occurs only in the pl. (Mt 5:9, “Blessed are the peacemakers [eirēnopoioí]: for they shall be called sons of God” [who is “the God of peace”]). We have also what seems to be a reflection of this saying in Jas 3:18, “The fruit of righteousness is sown in peace for [RVm “by”] them that make peace” (toís poioúsin eirênēn)
Disciple Up # 207 Are You Ready to be the Bad Guy? By Louie Marsh, 4-21-2021 Are you ready to be the bad guy? If not then you’d better get there quickly. Because if you are a follower of Christ who seeks to live your life by the commands of God in the Bible, or as I like to say think biblically, then you are the bad guy right now in many cases and it’s only going to get worse!

Disciple Up #204
Greater Than – Jesus the Greatest of All Time!
By Louie Marsh, 3-23-2021
“1Therefore, holy brothers, you who share in a heavenly calling, consider Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession, 2who was faithful to him who appointed him, just as Moses also was faithful in all God’s house. 3For Jesus has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses—as much more glory as the builder of a house has more honor than the house itself. 4(For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God.) 5Now Moses was faithful in all God’s house as a servant, to testify to the things that were to be spoken later, 6but Christ is faithful over God’s house as a son. And we are his house, if indeed we hold fast our confidence and our boasting in our hope.” (Hebrews 3:1–6, ESV)

This episode came from two Mike Rowe posts on his FaceBook page and a lot of things that have been rattling around in my head from nearly day one.
Because let’s face it – Hello my name is Louie and I’m a skeptic, and I don’t think I’ll ever recover or want to!

Disciple Up # 197 A Disciple’s Identity Pt. 4: Staying Hungry! (Plus the Coup In Burma) By Louie Marsh, 2-3-2021 1) I seek God’s righteousness NOT MY OWN since I have forsaken self. 6 “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. Matthew 5:6 (ESV) This is the key stone in the arch of the Beatitudes. A Christian mourns his own righteousness and seeks that which only comes from Jesus. If I have His righteousness then no one else’s matters 21 But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness
