The Chosen Path of the Beatitudes
Jesus delivers the radical claim that people who are "poor in spirit" are actually "blessed" (Matthew 5:3). How right He was, because this is the first crucial step in the chosen path of the beatitudes. He then continues a sermon that actually reveals a vital progression that helps establish a deeper relationship with our Creator. The spiritual path of the Beatitudes is prescribed for all, but must be chosen by each individual. God does not coerce; He calls. And the journey He calls us to is certainly one worth choosing. Why should we resist the comforting call of Jesus? "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy an.d My burden is light." (Matthew 11:28-30) Thats a deal worth taking. Honest seekers of truth - pack up your gear...were following Jesus down the path of the Beatitudes.
