“The beatitudes are lists of human 'lasts' that at the individualized touch of heaven become divine 'firsts'”--Dallas Willard

What does poverty, mourning, humility, hungering for justice, mercy, purity, peace, being mocked look like in a person?  Jesus teaches that God blesses a person who looks like these attitudes.  (Read Matthew 5:3-12 for His list of the beatitudes.) 

 Our culture and sometimes our heart teach us to not wait for God to bless.  We are told riches, happiness, pride, protecting our turf, condemnation, gusto, debating, and going along with the crowd is how to make our own blessing.  

Humanity is crowded with people trying to make their own blessing.  Jesus wants to lift people above the crowd.  Do you want Jesus to lift you above the crowd?

Join FUMC for inspiring worship and to think together about the “divine firsts” required so God will bless us to live above the crowd.
