#Blessed


New sermon series begins this Sunday! What does it mean to really live #Blessed Join us as we dig in to the greatest sermon ever preached.

Week 1 – Crowds and Kingdoms: Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. (Sermon MP3 / iTunes Podcast)

We long for the blessed Kingdom. It’s that longing for blessing, that longing for wholeness, that longing for Kingdom happiness that caused a crowd to sit at the feet of Jesus on the side of a mountain and listen to him preach the most profound sermon ever preached. And It’s a message the world needs to hear.

Week 2 – Kingdom Comfort for Seasons of Sorrow: Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. (Sermon MP3 / iTunes Podcast)

If you are brokenhearted, if you are lost, if you are mourning over your sin; or if as a follower of Jesus you are experiencing a season of sorrow – the Comforter himself is pulling you near, drawing you to his side. You will be comforted.

Week 3 – A Kingdom Inheritance for Lowly People: Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. (Sermon MP3 / iTunes Podcast)

Jesus is concerned about the least of us, the downtrodden, the ones who have been left out. As the meek await the coming Kingdom, the return of Christ Jesus, we live in anticipation of a glorious inheritance that this world can not satisfy.

Week 4 – Longing for Kingdom Rightness: Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled. (Sermon MP3 / iTunes Podcast)

Hungering for righteousness is about hungering for God to move and renew us according to his character, his nature. It’s about longing for the Rightness of the Kingdom to be experienced in and thru us, Kingdom People.

Week 5 – Kingdom Mercy: Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.  (Sermon MP3 / iTunes Podcast)

We are most like Jesus when we are merciful. When we extend mercy we are testifying of the work of the cross in our lives and extending the ministry of mercy to others.

Week 6 – The Glory of the Kingdom: Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.  (Sermon MP3 / iTunes Podcast)

The Pure in heart will see God face to face. We will experience eternal glory. We will experience in fullness what we only get a taste of right now. Show me Your Glory!

Week 7 – Kingdom of Peace: Blessed are the peacemaker, for they shall be called sons of God.  (Sermon MP3 / iTunes Podcast)

Peacemakers are those who speak into the chaos and proclaim “Peace! Be still!” Being a peacemaker isn’t a passive stance, it’s an active, aggressive posture against the enemy to silence and push back against his plans.

Week 8 – The Perseverance of the Persecuted: Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.  (Sermon MP3 / iTunes Podcast)

There is a direct relationship between heavenly kingdom reward and being emptied out for Christ. So how do we respond to persecution? We pray. We preach. We persevere. Blessed are those who are persecuted. Blessed are those who persevere.
