Matthew 5:3-10

Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn,
for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they will be called children of God.
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

2 Timothy 2:23-26

23 Don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels. 24 And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful.25 Opponents must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, 26 and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.

  • Poor in Spirit: Those who are Humble.
  • Meek: Kindness & Gentleness (can save lives, and is not a weakness.
  • Thirst for Righteousness: You will always be thirsty, because the world cannot fill you.
  • Mercy: Luke 6:36-3736 Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.
    37 “Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
    We pick and choose. You won’t be blessed if you don’t show mercy. Those who judge, can’t take judgement.
  • Peacemakers: Being peaceful is a State. Do something about it.
  • Persecuted: What are we providing to the enemy? When you’re standing for right, who cares? It’s ok! Don’t be popular, win souls not approval!

You must unlearn your definition of being blessed. To be blessed means to be spiritually prosperous. To be spiritually prosperous, you must chase God. If you’re not being blessed, what are you chasing after?
