Jesus began the Sermon on the Mount—the greatest sermon ever preached—by announcing his blessing on the people his first-century culture never would’ve thought to call “blessed.” We call these blessings the Beatitudes, and they’re as revolutionary and countercultural today as they were two thousand years ago.
Our culture blesses the happy, successful, and self-confident. Jesus blesses the mourners, the losers, and the downcast.
Our culture blesses those who walk on others to get on top. Jesus blesses the gentle, the humble, the ones who get walked on.
Our culture blesses those who’ll do anything to get ahead. Jesus blesses those who treat others with honesty, kindness, and grace.
Our culture blesses the fighters, the winners, the ultra-famous. Jesus blesses the peaceful, the passed-over, those willing to be unpopular for the sake of God’s kingdom.
Jesus turned the world upside down with a new way to love, and he does it still today. Join us in July for Love Revolution, a deep dive into the Beatitudes of Matthew chapter 5. Let’s discover the power of God’s love and blessings to open our eyes, challenge our culture, and change our lives forever.
