A study in blessings

Over the past couple of weeks we’ve had a look at two of the beatitudes found in Matthew 5:1-12; sermons can be found here:

The Be – Attitudes Part 1

Happy Are The Sad !!

  1. What has been going on before this ‘sermon on the mount’?
  2. Who is Jesus talking to and how have his words here been twisted and misconstrued by people from other faiths, atheists and even Christians?
  3. Take some time discussing the first two statements of Jesus about being poor in spirit and mourning, don’t rush through the discussion but try and deal with each in as much depth as possible and consider how we should apply each to our lives today.
  4. Spend some time seeking the Lord in Prayer for the life and work of New Connexions
