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...

The progress from the seventh beatitude, blessing for the peacemakers, to the eighth beatitude, blessing for the persecuted, is obvious. Being a peacemaker by practicing justice and love and living by Kingdom standards brings confrontation with a godless culture that will inevitably result in persecution...

We are a culture obsessed with purity. Products for sale often boast of "having nothing added" or "100% pure" etc. The goal of the computer industry is to try and make a "pure" chip. They have even used outer space to grow purer crystals. Fruit drinks are advertised as having 100% pure fruit drink, no added sugar or other additives. Wrigley's spearmint gum...

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...

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...

If you were to ask people ''Do you want to be happy, genuinely happy'' most would raise their hand and say, ''Yes. I want to be happy. I want to be truly happy.'' The only reason I say most is because I am absolutely convinced that some people are determined to be miserable - maybe they find joy in being miserable or at the...

Thank you so much. Take your Bibles please and turn to the gospel of Matthew chapter 5. Everyone has been very solicitous about my voice and I appreciate that. I got some post nasal drip last Sunday and I preached vociferously three times in a row Sunday morning and that did my voice in for last Sunday night. I so...

Someone has said that the definition of a good sermon is that it should have a good beginning. It should have a good ending. And they should be as close together as possible. A little boy asked his mother in Church, ''Mommy, what does it mean when the preacher takes off his watch and lays it on the pulpit?'' The mother replied...

I once read a story about a bicycle race in India. The object of the race was to go the shortest distance possible within a specified time. At the start of the race, everyone cued up at the line, and when the gun sounded all the bicycles, as best they could, stayed put. Racers were disqualified if they tipped over or one of their...

Everyone who puts his or faith in Jesus Christ is a citizen of God's kingdom. And in the Sermon on the Mount (Matt. 5-7), Jesus, our King, tells us that he expects his people to be different. In verses 2-12, Jesus begins the Sermon on the Mount with what are commonly called the Beatitudes. Each beatitude begins with the...

Our society places a great emphasis on self-reliance and self-confidence. That's why self-esteem is the core value of the present generation and is the fundamental basis of our educational system. If you want to be a success in this world you have to believe in yourself. For instance, how can you be a good salesman if you...

Our attitudes are like magnets. They create a spiritual force field that attracts to us exactly that which flows from us. If I have an attitude of anger I will attract anger. If I have an attitude of insensitivity I will attract insensitivity. If I have an attitude that condones lying I will eventually reap the harvest that the seeds of...

I consciously choose to commit all my life to Christ's care and control. ''He called a little child and had him stand among them. And He said: ''I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of...
