For too many years, I thought being a peacemaker was simply being a nice person.
Because of this illusion, I spiritualized my conflict avoidance and created a culture in my church where everyone pretended things were ok. This is the definition of false peace.
In the most recent podcast episode, I introduced the explosive idea that true peacemaking actually comes by disrupting false peace.
The truth is – Jesus’ kingdom cannot be built on lies or pretending that something wrong is right. This is why our definition of the work of peacemaking must be flipped upside down.
In the second part of this series, we explore how Jesus disrupted false peace by cleansing the temple. If you’re a people-pleaser, this is a critical message for our day!
