First, we must look at the word “blessed”.  Each of these verses begins with “blessed”.  Sounds like a religious word.  What does it really mean?  I

n short, it means “empowered to prosper and be whole”.

In the Amplified Bible, it is translated as “happy, to be envied, and spiritually prosperous – with life joy and satisfaction in God’s favor and salvation, regardless of outward conditions”.

I want that!  Sounds like building on a Rock to me!  These verses will tell us how to get there…what is required to be blessed….how to build our lives!  Come with me!

Matt. 5:3, “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”

Am I poor in spirit? What is the kingdom of heaven and do I want it?
