Happiness In Matthew 5, Jesus begins a sentence with the same words, “Blessed are...” eight different times. What does it mean to be blessed? It is a religious sounding word, isn’t it?

1 But now thus says the Lord , he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. 2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire…
Romans 12 - Foundations of the Christian Life
Continuing Paul's explanation of how our lives as Christians are transformed, we come to how we relate to those around us, both in and outside the church, who are difficult, who hound us.

When you choose to obey, you are deciding to TRUST God's Plans, SUBMIT to God's Authority, and BELIEVE God's Truth! You must choose to obey God in order to receive the blessings of God and have everlasting life.
Introduce the Kingdom of God The Bible is one grand continuous story. It’s God’s story. The Old and New Testaments are not two completely different stories. The New Testament and Jesus and His teachings do not somehow do away with or replace the Old Testament. Jesus taught and proclaimed the exact same…
This morning I'd like to begin with verse I think all of us can appreciate. 24 The Lord bless you and keep you; 25 the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; 26 the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace. Doesn't that sound wonderful! God as the creator shines…

The Power Of The Tongue 2 12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
