Series: Living the Good Life
September 08, 2019 | Dane Aaker
We’re starting a new series this week based on the Beatitudes. The Sermon on the Mount is Jesus’ most famous and well-known sermon. In part of this message to the people, Jesus shows how the result of the various situations we find ourselves in is, in fact, that of us being blessed. Our culture has a different understanding of what it means to be blessed, but as children of God, we are able to see His promises and are reminded of His character as He lays out for us the true meaning of blessedness. The Sermon on the Mount reminds us that there is no need to postpone our happiness to instead look to a future reward. We ARE blessed. This is a present reality! Rather than find our happiness in our circumstances, we ought to look to the happiness of God and let His joy affect the situations of our lives. What does it really mean to live the good life? What are God’s promises to us? What does a blessed life look like? Watch and learn what it means to be inheritors of the kingdom of Heaven, living out lives of blessing and happiness as we begin our series.
