Scripture: Matthew 5:1-12
Bulletin: Press this link
In looking at the many things that Jesus is, he was an amazing teacher and people came from all over to hear Him speak. Jesus was not one who had a goal to make you “feel good.” No, he constantly challenged the status quo and confronted the power structures of his time. This was not only for those in his day, Jesus also challenges us today with teachings that seem to be opposite of the world we live in. “Blessed are the poor in spirit, Blessed are those who mourn…, Blessed are those who are persecuted.” They really don’t seem to even make sense in our culture.
In this series we will look at one of His most famous teachings in all of history and Jesus’ longest recorded sermon: the Beatitudes from the Sermon on the Mount. Over the next several week we will focus on the Beatitudes talk about what it’s like to live “Right-side Up in an Upside Down World.”
