Sermon about Blessed: How to Be Blessed Matthew 5:1-12

How can you get blessed in life? How can you experience a rich experience of life? I mean a richness that goes beyond money into a full satisfaction with life—how do we get that?

Wanting a life of genuine blessing is something people have wanted for as long as individuals have been on earth. It certainly was desired in the time of Christ.

Today we’ll see the results of believing in Christ, followed by what to do about these results.

(So how can you get blessed in life? It is found by faith or trust in God. In other words…)

I. Showing Mercy and Compassion (Matthew 5:7)

Our exploration begins with the profound truth that blessings flow to those who show mercy and compassion. In Matthew 5:7, Jesus declares, "Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy." When we extend grace and compassion to others, we open ourselves to receiving God's abundant mercy in return. As recipients of God's mercy, we are called to reflect that same mercy to those around us.

II. Being Humble and Trusting God (Matthew 5:3-4)

The second key to true blessings is found in humility and trust in God. In Matthew 5:3-4, Jesus teaches, "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted." Humility acknowledges our need for God's grace, and mourning recognizes the brokenness of the world. In our humility and reliance on God, we find the comfort and assurance of His presence and promises.

III. Serving God and Others (Matthew 5:9)

The third aspect of experiencing blessings involves a heart dedicated to serving God and others. Matthew 5:9 proclaims, "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God." Peacemakers actively work towards reconciliation and harmony, reflecting God's desire for His children to be agents of peace. By pursuing peace, we align ourselves with God's character and receive the blessing of being called His children.

IV. You get blessed by believing (5:1-11)!

Living a life of purity allows us to perceive God's presence in our daily existence, as emphasized in Matthew 5:8. Following a Christian path in alignment with Jesus can result in holistic well-being—mentally, physically, and emotionally. This approach fosters mental health by steering clear of detrimental physical and emotional dependencies, thereby fortifying the mind against adverse influences like substance abuse. Moreover, it shields us from emotional turmoil.

Striving for reconciliation with others becomes a conduit for expressing God's essence (Matthew 5:9). Beyond these benefits, embracing a pure lifestyle advances the gospel message and fosters a greater willingness to extend love to others. Practicing mercy toward fellow beings leads to receiving divine mercy in return, as articulated in Matthew 5:7.

Showing mercy to others leads to receiving mercy from God (5:7).

True blessings are not measured by worldly standards, but by the alignment of our lives with God's principles. Showing mercy and compassion, being humble and trusting God, and serving Him and others are key pathways to experiencing God's blessings.

May we actively pursue these traits in our daily lives, allowing God's Spirit to work within us.

Let us be living testimonies of God's transformative power, shining His light in a world hungry for true blessings. May our lives draw others closer to Him.
