The Beatitudes The Beatitudes, a different quality of lifestyle than the unbelieving world. These principles of conduct are to be desired by every Christian who calls Jesus Lord. A work of the Holy Spirit in us if we submit to His will. A child of God who's relationship to God is close, will have purer motives out of love for God. One who is truly born of God sees these attributes as characteristic of kingdom life. Truly out of gratitude and love for God, we will live the gospel before others. Thank you Pastor Jeff, for again expounding great truths of scripture, in a way that is applicable to our lives.

Great Sermon! The Beatitudes remind me to except nothing from self, but everything from God. The principles of conduct. Sometimes I liken it to a barometer in measuring, if I am allowing the Holy Spirit to work within my life, a desire to be holy in heart that my motives be pure. Thank you Pastor Jeff, for the gift that God has given you in expounding the word of God, in a way we can understand.
Great Sermon! There is so much more to the beatitudes than I realized. Especially that they are characteristics of a true believe in Christ Jesus. Makes sense, I never put them together as definitions of my daily walk with the Lord. But I can see those in my life, not always. I will never know the "pure in heart" this side of heaven, that's for sure.
