Sons of God
Jesus’ teachings overthrow the common wisdom of the world. He began preaching a sermon on a mountain by sharing ten blessings for those who truly believed in God and followed Him with all their hearts. He assures those who are poor in spirit that they are actually rich for theirs is the kingdom of heaven; those who mourn will be comforted; the meek will be the ones who inherit the earth. Instead of the rich, the powerful, the beautiful or famous, it will be the poor, downtrodden, and humble who will receive the greatest blessings of all.
In particular, he says:
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.
Matthew 5:9 (ESV)
