Matthew chapter five says, Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. Do we actually lay eyes on Him? And what does that really mean?
You could interpret this comment from Jesus a number of ways, He said, “Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy.” Let's look at Matthew chapter five, to discuss this important teaching from Jesus.
Have you ever known someone who held to the letter of the law, but missed the purpose behind it?
We talk a lot about grace and mercy in Christian circles. But do we really know what these terms actually mean, and how to express them?
When you look over the past year, can you honestly say you’re growing closer to God? Let's look at the Beatitude portion of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount.
How’s your relationship with God going these days? Do you proactively seek to spend time with Him?
Let's reflect on the importance of the beatitude, "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness."
Fractured relationships aren’t easy to restore. Perhaps you have a strained relationship with a friend or loved one that needs mending.
When we hear the term “righteousness” we often think of rules and regulations, a standard we have to live up to. Let's study the beatitude, “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness.”
Let’s discuss the seeming contradictions in the beatitude, “Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth”
The idea of meekness winning the day doesn’t seem very realistic in our culture. And yet, in God’s kingdom, it’s the meek that will benefit in the long run.
What did Jesus mean when He said, "Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth"? Let's continue an in-depth look at the Sermon on the Mount.
It’s possible to think of meekness as a character flaw, that someone who is meek is merely unable to fight back or stand up for himself.
Sometimes it seems like only the strong-willed and forceful get things accomplished, that meekness is out of date and won’t work in today’s world.
The dictionary defines the word "meek" as overly submissive, compliant, spiritless, and tame. Doesn’t sound like much of a way to live!
