The Beatitudes are not action but character, spiritual qualities, “the beautiful attitudes.” They are the principles by which the believer must live to be happy.
They are who we are because we have been transformed.
Romans 12:2– Be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is.
—Perfect will; What and who we are as we mature in Christ. We are best served when God’s truth is not made dull lest it offend, or, as we say, “dumbed down” as if we were not capable of the challenge to live it. It is God’s counsel we need in a world that is growing more and more contrary to our faith. We need to hear from God. This series on the Beatitudes by Pastor John H. King explores the implications what it means to be transformed by the Word and Spirit as we obey Jesus’ teachings/commands covered in this series.
