January 18th News- Blessed are the Meek

January 15, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 


This week we will continue our series on the Beatitudes found in Matthew 5:1-12.

As we listen to Jesus’ words here, we discover that he is describing a new way for us to live right-side-up in an up-side-down world.

The third Beatitude is found Matthew 5:5:

     Blessed are the meek,  for they will inherit the earth. 

This, too sounds a bit up-side-down. But the key is understanding what jesus means when he uses the word we translate as “meek”. It’s not what you think– and understanding meekness properly can change your life and the lives of those around you!

That’s what we’ll be talking about this Sunday. To prepare, you can also read, Psalm 37:1-11 and see that Jesus is actually quoting a verse from this passage..

I also want to remind you that starting THIS SUNDAY, we will be combining our Sunday service with Faith Community Church for the next few months. If you remember, we did this at the end of the summer for a month as well. The big change for us is that our service time will be moved back from 9:15am to 10:00am.


Finally, I will preaching at the Hilltop Gospel Church at Russell House this Sunday and I want to invite you to be a part of it. Come and meet the fine folks of Russell House and encourage them with your love and good cheer!

Looking forward to Sunday!


Grace and peace,
