What Jesus Said about Successful Living: Principles from the Sermon on the Mount for Today

Over two thousand years ago, Jesus gave a sermon on a hillside in Israel that is as relevant and convincing today as it was to the crowds who gathered to hear Him teach the Sermon on the Mount.

The Principles of the Sermon on the Mount, and particularly the Beatitudes, are not ideals.  Ideals frustrate us because they demand perfection.  Christ didn't

Overview

Over two thousand years ago, Jesus gave a sermon on a hillside in Israel that is as relevant and convincing today as it was to the crowds who gathered to hear Him teach the Sermon on the Mount.

The Principles of the Sermon on the Mount, and particularly the Beatitudes, are not ideals.  Ideals frustrate us because they demand perfection.  Christ didn't set up impossible ideals; He established goals--goals we can work toward and reach now.  And in the process of moving toward these goals, our actions and attitudes are affected.

In this comprehensive and fascinating exploration of Matthew 5, 6, and 7 discover afresh--or perhaps for the first time--the life-changing principles that are the way to true happiness.  Learn how to be a Beatitude person by understanding and applying the principles Jesus taught about such qualities as humility, meekness, and purity, and experience the unexpected results they bring.

Jesus wants His disciples to strive toward these goals to master a new kind of life.  He wants us to be Beatitude people.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A BEATITUDE PERSON?
