The Blessed: Sermon Series on the Beatitudes
“Blessed are the poor in spirit.”
Sermon Date: May 27th, 2018 Preacher: Ramny Perez Text: Matthew 5:1-3
1. In what particular ways you are seeing your spiritual bankruptcy in this season of your life? How is it that Jesus can call you ‘blessed’ in the midst of these things?
2. Pastor Ramny shared how the poor in spirit are those who see themselves rightly before God. Is there a difference between how you are seeing yourself and how God sees you? Explain.
3. Citizens of the kingdom of heaven are those who have submitted themselves to God’s rule and reign over their lives and give obedience to Jesus as their King. In what ways are you struggling to submit yourself to the Lordship of Christ? Can you point to ways that, by his grace, you are joyfully walking in obedience to Him?
