Beatitudes Part 1

This Sunday we dove headlong into the beatitudes which is Latin for happiness. Speaking to the crowd mixed with disciples and onlookers, Jesus teaches the that the kingdom of the heavens is available to the least likely of people - the poor, the sad, the meek and the hungry. His teaching takes aim at the heart in order that the people of God might be salt and light to the world (Matthew 4:17; 4:23; 5:1-10; 5:13-20; 5:48; 28:18-20).
