You Are Blessed!


Introduction to the Sermon on the Mount

Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, and he began to teach them.

The Beatitudes

He said:
“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn,
    for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
    for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
    for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
    for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
    for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
    for they will be called children of God.
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12 Rejoice and be glad,because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.



Can you relate to any of these? I can certainly relate to several and the one I'd like to write a personal not on is verse 6 "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled." These Beatitudes are written about current physical circumstances here on earth and the fulfillment will take place in our eternal home in Heaven with the Lord. I know I can never get enough time to read in the Word and pray so I'm hungry and thirsty for that living water to and only it can fulfill that place in me and this makes me blessed but the fullness will not happen now but once this body passes I will be filled once on in eternity with Jesus. That's our hope and that's the faith we stand on Brothers and Sisters, Let it sustain you in this lifetime whatever you are going through remember you are blessed and count it all joy for your suffering because eternity is a long time and this lifetime is very short and limited in comparison. You are Blessed! Stay connected KimFincher.org
