DAY 5 – Meekness is Not Weakness | 21-Day Devotional on Jesus’ Beatitudes and Sermon on the Mount

2/4/2023
Matthew 5:5, Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. Many years ago, I watched a television commercial in which a young Charles Barclay said, “The meek may inherit the earth, but they won’t get the ball from me." In first two Beatitudes Jesus used words like poor, mourning, and in the third, meek. In the fourth Beatitude Jesus used the words hunger and thirst. It seems that Jesus turned conventional wisdom and normal thinking upside down. He elevated “weak” words. In popular...

DAY 4 | How Mourning Brings Comfort | 21-Day Devotional on Jesus’ Beatitudes and Sermon on the Mount | Introduction, Cont.

2/3/2023
Matt. 5:4, Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. Typically, we only associate mourning with the death of a loved one. This is the correct meaning of the word, along with “to lament” and “to weep.” Mourning is not limited to death. We also mourn, or show compassion, for any situation that leaves people sad, hurt, or lacking. When we mourn, remember that Jesus wants someone comforted. Comfort is help on every level. As with all the Beatitudes, Jesus highlighted something...

DAY 3 – ”The Wealth of Being Poor in Spirit” | 21-Day Devotional on Jesus’ Beatitudes and Sermon on the Mount

2/2/2023
Matthew 5:3, Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Our western, American, prosperity-driven, materialistic mindset wants nothing to do with anything “poor.” So we should not be surprised if a person’s first, uninformed, reaction to words like, “Blessed are the poor in spirit” would be “No way! Not me!” Sometimes people only read “blessed are the poor…” If material poverty was the will of God, Jesus would have never provided for people in need or told us to do...

DAY 2 | Everyday and Present Blessing | 21-Day Devotional on Jesus’ Beatitudes and Sermon on the Mount | Introduction, Cont.

2/1/2023
Jesus’ first in a series of sermons (teachings) from Matthew 5:3-12 is called “The Beatitudes.” (Re-read these verses) In these statements of blessings (Beatitudes), Jesus did not speak of what WILL BE, He spoke of WHAT IS. As a Christ follower, always think of blessing in the present tense, not in the future tense. Definition of blessing: (Greek μακάριος transliterated, makarios) To speak well of, to invoke blessings upon, to cause to prosper, to make happy, to bestow blessings on. We...
