Pastor's Sunday Sermon

February 13, 2022

 

 

Addressing our heart issues

  • Jesus was speaking to his disciples. This message is for those who follow Jesus.

  • Blessed can be replaced with fortunate

  • Blessed are:

        1. Poor in spirit

        2. Those who mourn

        3. Humble

        4. Hunger for righteousness

        5. The Merciful

        6. Pure In Heart

        7. The Peacemakers

  • When need to be prepared in every season to defend our faith, but that should not be the first reaction to things that come our way.

  • We need to be able to interact with both the church and the world without being abrasive. We have hope that we are commanded to share.

 

Matthew 5:1-10

Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, 2 and he began to teach them.

The Beatitudes

He said:

3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit,
   for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 Blessed are those who mourn,
   for they will be comforted.
5 Blessed are the meek,
   for they will inherit the earth.
6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
   for they will be filled.
7 Blessed are the merciful,
   for they will be shown mercy.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart,
   for they will see God.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers,
   for they will be called children of God.
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
   for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
