Living It Out
Despite what you have been told, God wants you to be happy in Him. Jesus preached the greatest sermon ever spoken on a mountain with a very diverse audience. Everyone was in that crowd. In the process, He began to establish His kingdom and baffle the listeners. Jesus said,
Happy are the poor in spirit for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
- Happy are they that mourn for they shall be comforted.
- Happy are the meek for they shall inherit the earth.
- Happy are they who hunger and thirst after righteousness.
- Happy are the merciful for they shall obtain mercy.
- Happy are the pure in heart for they shall see God.
- Happy are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God.
- Happy are they who are persecuted for righteousness sake.
