The Jesus Way: The Beatitudes. Matthew 5:3-16 - 5.12.19

 

What if Jesus’ intent was not “try harder to live like this” 

What if the blessedness Jesus describes is not connected to our capacity to gain it … but is already resident within us because of our relationship with Jesus? 

It’s what life with Christ actually looks like … even when we’re beneath the weight of circumstances we can’t change or control … or our life is not working as we hoped or expected … when our life feels beyond hope… even times we don’t feel like we have God’s blessing? 

What if the moments we see these qualities in our lives is evidence that Christ and God’s Kingdom is breaking through and showing up in us?
