“Blessed, Rejoice, Jump”

Blessings Folk!

Today’s reading:

Matthew 5:3-12
Luke 6:20b-23


What the world considers to be foolishness and weakness:
  • poor in spirit
  • mourning
  • meek
  • hunger and thirst for righteousness
  • mercy
  • pure in heart
  • peacemaker
  • persecuted for the sake of righteousness
  • bearing under insult and persecution

What the Lord states will be the reward for those who endure such:
  • kingdom of heaven
  • comfort
  • inherit the earth
  • satisfaction
  • mercy
  • see God
  • called children of God
  • kingdom of heaven (repeated!

Our response?
  • Rejoice!
  • Be glad!
  • Jump for joy!

Are you?
Living in the Kingdom as we await the Kingdom...
