Jesus offer hope without hype, if we trust him enough to build our lives on his ways.

The Blessed Life According to Jesus

Blessed is the one who experiences God in charge.

This is what it looks like…

Blessed are the persecuted for righteousness sake, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called God’s children.

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.

Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.

The Pinnacle of the Sermon on the Mount

Be careful not do you religious stuff to look good to people. God knows that is a total waste of time with no lasting benefit!

— Mt. 6:1 (Russell’s pretty good paraphrase)

8 Beatitudes are explained in reverse order Mt. 5:11–6:24

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied.

Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.
