3 Guys, in continuing the discussion of how we live out the Beatitude ideals with their promise of blessing or of God's favor being extended to us as a result of how we live out these qualities, are brought to the intersection of living out God's call of being peacemakers and enduring persecution with joy, while also living out the call of Jesus to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world, as our response to persecution. Interestingly enough, this discussion comes directly on the heels of the Supreme Court ruling on same sex marriage. This is certainly a situation that calls for being peacemakers while enduring persecution. If only we can also be salt and light, in the midst of it all.
