Radically Different
Series: #blessed
The beatitudes are not a list of pithy of statements. They are not a set of things to do. The beatitudes are Jesus' call to his people to live a radically different life because in that life we have a happiness that is radically more than anything the world can offer us. Jesus said “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." It is only when you live a radically different life for a radically different happiness will Jesus words make any sense to you. What about you? Where is your happiness? Is it here? Or is it in the Kingdom of Heaven? *In todays message we listened to a story about a Martyr named Fatima. You can watch the video here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-C23vIl0dKw&t=45s

    Make Peace
    Series: #blessed
    Not only do we want to be happy but we want peace in our lives. But in light of what Jesus teaches the question we should ask ourselves is "What am I doing to get peace"? As children of God we are not only called to desire peace but we are called to actively get involved and create it. Listen to Part 5

    Happiness in Mercy
    Series: #blessed
    We all want true lasting happiness. But we also seem to want to nurse the grudges and bitterness that we have for those who wrong us. But Matthew 5:7 helps us to see that this is completely inconsistent. It is a contradiction in terms. Jesus says blessed are the merciful not the merciless. Listen to Part 4

    Meek or Weak
    Series: #blessed
    When Jesus said the meek are blessed, was Jesus saying the Christian life is about being powerless and afraid? Not at all! What Jesus is talking about is much more profound and much more important. He is talking about a way to glorify God in our lives that demonstrates that our hope is Him and not the world.

    The Pursuit of Happiness
    Series: #blessed
    We all want to be happy. But all of the things that we pursue to find happiness seem to only give us temporary happiness. It never really lasts. It seams we are hardwired for something deeper, something more profound. Something that truly brings joy and satisfaction. Jesus tells us about that kind of happiness and tells us where we can find it. Listen to part 1.
