BEATITUDES SERMON OUTLINES

by M. Jolaine Szymkowiak

The Beatitudes are more than just good principles to live by, to reflect upon for us to give occasional notice. They are another of God's ways to get us to think of more than what is going on around and within us. Through the study of the Beatitudes, He gives more than we are capable of appreciating, and asks more than we think we are capable of doing. The Beatitudes...

As a way of reminder, this series of messages is entitled ''Blessing Redefined'' because in these 8 verses from verse 3 to verse 10 called the Beatitudes, Jesus redefines what ''blessing'' is. He moves it to the ''internal'' rather than the ''external''. This was, and is, countercultural to the world's philosophy of what...

Chapter five begins the Sermon on the Mount, the longest sermon Jesus preached. It begins in chapter five and continues through chapter seven. In chapter three, we read of the Lord's baptism. Following His baptism, we move to chapter four, where Mathew recounts the Lord's forty day fast and temptation by the devil...

Would you find again the beatitudes? Matthew Chapter 5, we're calling these the keys to the kingdom. And these are statements that Jesus Christ has made, and He begins each one of them with the word blessed. The word blessed is almost hard to translate. We could say happy, but it means more than happy. It means fulfilled. It means with joy. It means...

There are several beatitudes in the Scripture. Those that we are most familiar with are the 9 Jesus delivered in His sermon on the mount. ''Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.'' ''Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.'' ''Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.''...

Last week I preached about spiritual weakness quoting from Jesus' Sermon on the Mount: ''Blessed are the poor in spirit.'' Discipleship empties us of our self-sufficiency - we never forget how much we depend on the grace of God. But Jesus didn't' give us the Beatitudes...

Paradox is defined as something that seems to be a great inconsistency...and no where does anything seem to be more out of place than to make the statement that mourning will bring comforting. But that is exactly what Jesus tells us here in the second Beatitude from the Sermon on the Mount...

Dudley Tyng was an Episcopal pastor. He lived in the mid-1800s. He was known for being a fiery preacher, a dynamic preacher, and somebody who stood strong and stood tall for righteousness. And he spoke out against evil. He was a preacher in Philadelphia. He preached a sermon in his own church on the evils of slavery...
