Blessed Are You

Message Series on the Beatitudes

Blessed Are You

Full Service • April 19, 2020 • Thad Huff

In this series, we want to focus on the beginning of one of the most amazing challenges to the new followers of Jesus ever given. Jesus Sermon on the Mount began with a list of blanket encouragements on how to live a blessed life. They are instructions for the character of the Christian and not a list of things for someone to do to get better at living apart from Jesus. (They are characters to become as a follower of Jesus vs. behavior modifications.) Our prayer is that you can learn these and begin to recognize them rising up within yourself. And when you recognize them...that you would lean in instead of pulling away...then you too will experience the fullness of those three words, “BLESSED ARE YOU”.

Be Comforted
