Sermons about Beatitudes
Jesus says it is a blessing to hunger and thirst for righteousness. The problem is sometimes we fill ourselves up on other things and have no desire, no hunger for God's righteousness.
The Kingdom of God and what it looks like when He comes to reign in our lives.
In our world it the loudest, the proudest, the most willing to fight who get ahead. Yet Jesus says, "blessed are the meek." As we continue to look at this upside down world that Jesus invites us to partake in we discover that meekness is not weakness, but strength under control.
Jesus announces that those who mourn are the blessed ones. Which doesn't seem quite right when we look at from our perspective. But we find out the Kingdom of God is upside down and those who are blessed often look different than we imagine.
The Kingdom of God works quite differently than the kingdoms of this world. In the Sermon on the Mount Jesus teaches us the way of His Kingdom. In the Beatitudes He announces those who are blessed and it turns out it is not those we would have expected. It turns out the Kingdom is upside down.
This message looks at the discipleship process of Jesus through the Beatitudes. God uses the qualities, characteristics and circumstances of life that we tend to despise to develop his life and character in us.
