23 Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people. 24 News about him spread all over Syria, and people brought to him all who were ill with various diseases, those suffering severe pain, the demon-possessed, those having seizures, and the paralyzed; and he healed them. 25 Large crowds from Galilee, the Decapolis, Jerusalem, Judea and the region across the Jordan followed him.

Matthew 5:1-2 (NIV2011)
1  Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, 2  and he began to teach them.

Matthew 7:28 (NIV2011)
28  When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching…

Sermon Text:

Matthew 5:3-12 (NIV2011)
3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
5 Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.
6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.
7 Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
9 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.

The Beatitudes describe citizenship in God’s Kingdom
Example: US vs. Israel

The Beatitudes describe blessedness in the present
 “Blessed are…”
The Beatitudes describe blessedness in the present
 “Blessed” = “Makarios”(Greek) = “happy” = “Beatitudo” (Latin)

Happiness resilient to circumstances
“Blessed are…for they shall…”

Happiness that points to the future
Example: Not even the worst can prevent our best
The Beatitudes are “Be-attitudes” not “Do-attitudes”

Matthew 5:48 (NIV2011)
48  Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
Example: Light bulb


Kingdom living is only possible in Christ
John 15:1-5 (NIV2011)
1  “I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener.2  He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. 3  You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. 4  Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. 5  “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.
