The Beatitudes

The Beatitudes

Passage: Matthew 5:1-12

Speaker: Pastor Stephen Palm

Series: Matthew: The King and His Kingdom

Category: Expository Book Study

In Matthew chapters 5 – 7 we will explore the inexhaustible riches of Jesus teaching ministry. Much of what our Lord shares in this discourse has provided the moral framework of Western civilization for 2,000 years. Famed Theologian Francis Schaefer once wrote a book titled, ‘how should we then live?’ The sermon on the mount answers that single yet pivotal question. While this monumental teaching is directed at those who will be alive during the Kingdom Age (Rev. 20:1-10). The virtues Jesus describes in these 12 verses should be the characteristic of every Christ follower in this present age. In the first six verses we will explore what it means to have a right relationship with God, and in verses 7- 12 we will see what it looks like to have a right relationship with people (Source: The Moody Bible Commentary). Jesus leaves us with promise. The reward for our righteousness often does not come in this world, but as live out the gospel, let us remember we are storing up our reward in heaven (v. 12) that will be enjoyed in the presence of the lamb for all eternity.
