We are going to be learning from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount that is recorded in Matthew’s Gospel at our Sunday morning service from October through to December under the title: The Beatitudes – Life in God’s Kingdom.
What does it mean to be blessed of God? What can we learn about the character of those who wish to be part of the Kingdom of Heaven and what happens when we live that character out? These words of Jesus that we call the beatitudes are so often reduced to just nice sayings but the truths they contain are radical.
