Series:
Speaker:

The Sermon on the Mount

Michael Boehm

Scripture:

Matthew 5:1-12

Notes:

Are you happy?  Do you want to be happy?


Beatitude: Latin root is "blessed".


Jesus paints a picture of how wonderful it is to follow God.

Matt. 5:3 "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."

       - A dependence on God; "Lord I need you."


Matt 5:4 "Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted."

       - Citizens of My Kingdom are blest

       - My citizens are happy because they grieve about their sin.

       - Jesus won't leave us in our grief


Matt 5:5 "Blessed are the weak, for they will inherit the earth"

       - Strength under control

       - To be week shows a willingness to submit under control

       - The meek don't always have to prove themselves

       - The meek are released to be humble and sensitive
