VI BLESSED (WELL OFF) ARE THE PEACEMAKERS FOR THEY SHALL
BE CALLED CHILDREN (SONS) OF GOD
Basic to all our relationships is the fact that we are members of Godís family as sons and daughters. We pray not to be excluded from His family as will happen when, at the final judgment when he condemns the selfish ones with the words, ďNot everyone who says to me, ĎLord, Lord,í will enter the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 7:21-23.
To be a part of Godís family Ė we are told we must do the will of Jesusís Father who is in heaven. What is the Fatherís will? First: Bring the peace of Jesus into our own life. As a spiritual child of God, it is expected that we obey what Godís son has told us, namely, to carry out his teachings and those of the Church he founded since it is guided in matters of faith and morals by the Holy Spirit.
We strengthen and build up the Body of Christ on earth through our faith, prayer, good works and efforts to unite everyone in one love for God.
