  • 1 Seeing the crowds, he went up on the mountain, and when he sat down, his disciples came to him.
    2 And he opened his mouth and taught them, saying:
    3 "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
    4 "Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
    5 "Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
    6 "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
    7 "Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.
    8 "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
    9 "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.
    10 "Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
    11 "Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.
    12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

    2019-01-21   Most people think of being blessed as being lucky, having many things, and living a long, peaceful life. However, the blessing the Jesus speaks of this dramatically different. What is the blessing that Jesus talks about?

이해하기(Understanding)
Jesus spoke to the crowd gathered at the hill about the principles the people of God’s kingdom exemplify. The blessedness Jesus spoke of does not look like someone who is blessed from the world’s perspective, this is because the blessedness Jesus spoke of is not of the world but of the kingdom of Heaven. This blessing means a life together with Jesus (vv. 1-10). Persecution in Jesus will turn into blessing. Since the reward is great in Heaven, He says that we need to rejoice and be glad. We need to start living for the blessing of God that is different from the world (vv. 11-12).


적용하기(Applying)
Who is God?
The blessing of God can only be experienced by those in a relationship with God. Because of sin, man can never experience this blessing because sin keeps them from having pure communion with God. However, a relationship with God can be found because of Jesus Christ. Take one step closer to Jesus and respond to His Words obediently. You will experience blessing that cannot be expressed in words nor understood by the world.

What is the lesson for me?
The pain and persecution we face because of believing and following Jesus will turn into rewards. Have you been treated unfairly at school because of obeying Jesus? Do you get ignored because you don’t use the language that others use? This is the persecution that one experiences because of living in faith. However, this persecution is why God cares for us.


기도하기(Praying)
I desire to value Your Word of blessing more than the joy of the world. Help me to recognize Your blessing.
