Announcements, Sept. 18, 2015
This Sunday we’ll zero in on the Beatitudes, specifically Matthew 5:1–9. As we established last week, the Beatitudes and the rest of the Sermon on the Mount are not ethical laws that we must keep so that God will accept us, but rather they are what the Christian life should look like because God has made us alive in Christ. But beyond just having personal implications, the Beatitudes and the rest of the Sermon give us a picture of what life should, could, and will look like in the Kingdom of God.
Take some time to read and meditate on Matthew 5:1–9. In fact, why not consider memorizing the Beatitudes? Pray for God to speak to His people Sunday and draw unbelievers to faith in Christ. Looking forward to seeing you!
Grace and peace,
