This past Sunday, June 3 at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Charleston, SC, our senior pastor continued our Matthew sermon series as we explored shalom and peace as a context for Scripture. We must choose the blessings of God and seek to live lives of peace. Matthew’s gospel records Jesus’ first words from the Sermon on the Mount as “Blessed are…” Our senior pastor reminded us that being “blessed” does not mean getting stuff; it is knowing how to live in this world. Will you live your life in the context of shalom? Listen to the whole sermon here.
