Text: Luke 6:20-26

How can you tell that God is blessing you?  Many people believe that those who are rich, comfortable, happy and popular are the most blessed.  Jesus says that those whom God blesses are the poor, hungry, sad and hated.  How can this be?

In this sermon we examine Luke’s version of the Beatitudes.  How do these statements compare to the Beatitudes recorded in Matthew 5:3-12?  How are we to understand Jesus’ shocking statements?  How are the Beatitudes fulfilled in Jesus?

Before listening to this sermon read Luke 6:20-26 and Matthew 5:3-12.
