Grace Happenings | July 12, 2022

Pastors Pen

Our attitudes change everything either good or bad. We have the power to choose our 

own attitudes.  Jesus in His Sermon on the Mount gave us an example of eight attitudes 

we must choose in order to be blessed and live in a sense of joy and happiness. 

We have worked through two of these attitudes and will work on the third this weekend. 

Let me share them here from the Amplified Translation (Matthew 5:3-5): 

“Blessed [spiritually prosperous, happy, to be admired] are the poor in spirit [those 

devoid of spiritual arrogance, those who regard themselves as insignificant], for 

theirs is the kingdom of heaven [both now and forever].

“Blessed [forgiven, refreshed by God’s grace] are those who mourn [over their sins 

and repent], for they will be comforted [when the burden of sin is lifted].

Here is the attitude we will work on this week –  “Blessed [inwardly peaceful, 

spiritually secure, worthy of respect] are the gentle [the kind-hearted, the sweet-

spirited, the self-controlled], for they will inherit the earth.

Here is what I want you to consider today…. what if each of these attitudes are character

blocks, one building on another to prepare us for what Jesus introduces at the end of the 

eight attitudes? In verses 10-12 Jesus tells us that we should expect to be persecuted as 

His followers.  I have been pondering what Jesus maybe saying, if we fail to develop 

these attitudes of poor in spirit, spiritual mourning, meekness, and so on as building 

blocks to our character then we will never be able to handle persecution when it comes. 

Excited to share with you this weekend.
