#BLESSED: Beatitude 4
June 28, 2020
Our fourth Beatitude: “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied is the midpoint of Jesus’ teaching on the Beatitudes. It is here that He uncovers the desire of His people. With each Beatitude building on the previous one, Jesus gives us the final blessing in relationship to self before moving onward to our relationship with others. It is no coincidence that our desire for God’s Kingdom comes before we are able to relate to the needs of others. By doing this Jesus addresses the very source of our spiritual lives so that His followers would not slip into a slow fade of apathy, but instead, be satisfied by the hand of God.
