The Beatitudes 5 - Blessed Are You When Others Revile You And Persecute You

In this final sermon on the Beatitudes, we learn that Jesus tells us we are blessed when we are persecuted and reviled on His account, and that our reward will be great in heaven. Beatitude means supreme blessing. Following the Lord is the surest way to find joy in life. This is true even though others might persecute and revile us. We are called to live for God's approval and not the approval of man. This sermon gives us a list of specific things to do if we want to live for God. When we choose to do this, we receive blessings now and rewards in heaven.

The Beatitudes 4 - Blessed Are The Peacemakers

We continue to study the supreme blessings we know as the Beatitudes. This sermon is focused on peacemakers. Jesus tells us the peacemakers shall be called the children of God. What does it mean to grieve the Holy Spirit? The way we treat others, fellow church members, neighbors, even those we consider to be friends and loved ones, can grieve the Holy Spirit. As true peacemakers, we should actively be kind, giving and forgiving to others.We cannot be right with God, and therefore be blessed by God, if we do not truly love our neighbor as we love ourselves. Our behavior toward others should show the world that we are peacemakers.

The Beatitudes 3 - Blessed Are Those Who Hunger And Thirst For Righteousness

Jesus would eventually teach his disciples what the kingdom of God was all about, but first he describes for us the character of a Christian in this passage known as 'The Beatitudes.' A hunger and thirst after righteousness is a significant characteristic of a Christian. Righteousness means to obey God's laws. We should have a deep desire for righteousness as a deer pants for water. So, we should have a deep desire to obey God's law. Through Christ, we can obey and our deep desire can be satisfied. Through obedience, we will be blessed.

The Beatitudes 2 - Blessed Are The Meek

In the second sermon in the Beatitudes series, we learn what it means to be meek, that we can choose to become meek and we will be blessed. Jesus says the meek will inherit the earth. Meekness is gentle, does not need its own way, is not assertive and delights in peace. When we look at our own lives, are we worthy of being called meek? Do we go into the world in love? Jesus modeled meekness even though He was God. Jesus made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. Will we follow the example of Jesus and be meek?

The Beatitudes 1 - Blessed Are The Poor In Spirit

Jesus waited 30 years to begin preaching. His first message was this sermon we know as the Beatitudes. For thousands of years, Israel thought they knew who God was, that He was a wrathful judge in heaven, but the first thing Jesus says in His first message is "Blessed . . ." We are blessed in Christ in many ways. Learn what it means to be 'poor in spirit' and how to inherit the Kingdom of Heaven.
