Conclusion to Week 1 of Sermon on the Mount: Matthew 5:1-16
Great study of the Beatitudes! There is so much here that we all can learn from and implement into our daily lives. And, the words are so simple, but the actions are not so simple.
If you are feeling overwhelmed right now by the depth of these verses, I think a good place to start is to desire more of God in your life. Simply pray, “God, I want more of you,” and see what He does. Sometimes, the simple things is all God asks of us and what we can do in our lives.
Will you pray that right now?
