The point of the Beatitudes is NOT “do these things and you’ll make God happy,” but rather “this is the kind of person God wants you to be.” Pastor John Young continues his exploration of the Beatitudes with “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.” Message delivered 4/19/2009.
Jesus taught, “Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the Earth.” When he rode into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, he was declaring himself the King, but in a way that was the perfect illustration of what he said about being meek. Message delivered 4/5/09
