Here’s the fourth message in the series titled “The Essential Jesus: 10 Things to Know about Jesus if You Don’t Know Anything Else.” I preached this message on January 29, 2023. The text is Matthew 5:1-12, which is the opening passage of The Sermon on the Mount. In this message we explore the Beatitudes, and what it means to be blessed. Listen for the three categories into which Jesus groups these people who exhibit traits that reflect the Kingdom of God. I hope your Sunday is glorious!
