BEGINNINGS

BEGINNINGS

When I think of Jesus ministry and the beginnings of his impact on the world, I think of the Beatitudes. The practices of his followers become the fruit of the Christ Follower’s Life – this is the Church that was built on the site. It is a beautiful amphitheater like hillside where Jesus could speak to a crowd from the shore or a boat and cast a vision instead of a net. Faith built not on accomplishments and law but on love that flows out of a forgiven life and touching lives all over the earth. Read them…

Jesus said:

3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 Blessed are those who mourn,
for they will be comforted.
5 Blessed are the meek,
for they will inherit the earth.
6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they will be filled.
7 Blessed are the merciful,
for they will be shown mercy.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they will see God.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they will be called children of God.
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12 Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward…..

We are blessed in the living out of these actions – these fruits. Not everyone is called to everything but some of you are called to a mission. It is not to put that mission upon the shoulders of others but for you to do it. You to find fellow disiciples to carry it out – to live it out. This is not a new “Law” but a life that flows from a relationship with Jesus.

Be Well…
