As we prepare for Easter, we celebrate Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, and Good Friday during Holy Week.
Our focus is on Jesus’ introductory words in the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:1-12). The Be-Attitudes are attitudes, ways of thinking, that are contrary to popular opinion or natural ways of thinking. Jesus’ words challenge us to think with a kingdom perspective. We will discover the true meaning of words like humility, meekness, spiritual hunger, mercy, purity, peace-maker, and how to endure persecution. Only through Christ, can we learn to “be” what we were destined to become.
