June 16, 2013 “Blessed Submission”


Open your Bibles to Matthew 5. Once again I’ll ask you to stand as I read through all eight of Jesus’ statements known as the Beatitudes. I’m doing this in the hope that as we hear them repeatedly they will soak into our souls. It’s also a great way to memorize them. Read vv.1-12. It says that Jesus sat down and His disciples came to Him and He taught them. What if that happened today? What if you and I came not to be entertained or amused, but we sat with the word of Jesus to be transformed. May that happen as we hear again these radical statements of Jesus.
