January 25th News- Blessed are the those who hunger and thirst for righteousness

January 24, 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 5:6

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,  for they will be filled. 

What does it mean to “hunger and thirst for righteousness”? What is righteousness?!? Once again Jesus causes us to think and wonder about what he is saying. But that’s a good thing! We will look at scripture to discover what he is telling his followers…

That’s what we’ll be talking about this Sunday. To prepare, you can also read, Philippians 3:4-11, John 6:26-40, and Isaiah 55:1-7.

I also want to remind you that we have combined our Sunday service with Faith Community Church for the next few months as their pastor, Troy Smith, is on a sabbatical.  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.


Looking forward to Sunday!


Grace and peace,
