Early on in Jesus’s ministry a large crowd had gathered to hear Him. Scripture says when Jesus saw the crowd, He went up on a mountainside (Matthew 5:1). What would follow is not only the longest sermon we have recorded by Jesus, but a radically different approach to life that begins with what many know as “The Beatitudes.” Easy to remember, often quoted; less often understood. The Beatitudes provide a roadmap towards happiness and a blessed life by challenging the wisdom of consensus. Jesus is offering an alternate route through life that brings freedom and healing from so many of the things that bring us down and hold us back. Join us as we invest five weeks into finding freedom from life’s hurts, habits, and hangups through Jesus’s teaching on how to live blessed.
