Reflection: It’s All About Grace (with a little help from mirrors!)
- Blessed are the poor in spirit
- Blessed are those who mourn
- Blessed are the meek
- Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness
- Blessed are the merciful
- Blessed are the pure in heart
- Blessed are the peacemakers
- Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness
Listen one more time:
Are you poor in spirit? -Yours is the kingdom of heaven – an amazing promise!
Are you mourning? - You will be comforted – a wonderful promise.
Are you meek? - You will inherit the earth – another awesome promise!
Do you long for what’s right? - you will be filled with righteousness – yet another great promise.
Are you merciful ?- You will be shown mercy – one more comforting promise!
Is your heart pure? - You will see God – most certainly a promise!
Do you try to keep the peace? - You will be called a child of God – another delightful promise!
Are you persecuted for your faith? - Yours is the kingdom of heaven – can you believe it: Yet another encouraging promise.
And before I
finish: The people who listened to Jesus were from all walks of life. He taught
them all. So, we too are all called to bring God’s light into unlit places,
hearts and situations; places outside these church walls.
