Summary Matthew 5:3

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

Do you now have a better idea of what Jesus is trying to teach us?  Yes!

So, now I have chosen to build on the Rock (the goal at the end of the sermon).  I know the Rock is Jesus and His kingdom is where to build.

How did I start, on what crucial foundation?  I started with recognizing sin and how utterly poor I was in spirit.  I began repenting of my partaking in sin.  I changed my family/citizenship and whose authority I come under.  I took a vow and made an earnest commitment.  I realized the only way to spiritual blessing into the heavenly kingdom is through Jesus, the Savior. I am determined to be loyal to live in my new family ways and fight against all His adversaries.

I now live with my eyes wide open to my need and the poor condition of the world I left and the people who still live in it.  I must keep building!

Next, Matt: 5 verse 4, “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.”

As you think on these words, what do you think Jesus is trying to teach us?
