Matthew Chapter 5, verses 1-16

The Beatitudes – these first 16 verses in Matthew 5 – set the theme for the whole Sermon on the Mount, in fact, for all of life once Jesus began His ministry.  They are saying:  Once you believe in Jesus Christ you enter the Kingdom of Heaven….not someday after you die…but right away, as soon as you believe.  And the Kingdom of Heaven is not at all like the world you’ve been living in.  The rules are different.  The reality is different.  Something might look absolutely horrible in your old world, but in the Kingdom of Heaven, it’s a blessing!
