(Matthew ) Ptochos (poor. )They, then, who even in out poor, low way, are conformed, or beginning to be conformed, to God's mind in considering — that is, in searching out, compassionating, and relieving — distress have that in them which must be the source of blessedness, because they have that in them which is the source of happiness (I speak, of course, after the.

“The Duty and Blessedness of Biblical Assurance” Text: Read; 2 Peter Intro: I think that it was Thomas Watson who once said, ‘There are two things that are very hard for the preacher to do.

1st> Make the godly glad; 2nd> Make the ungodly sad.’ I think that most of us would agree, that there is nothing so vitally important as the salvation of our souls. The Blessedness of Duty. " and thereupon He showed to the poor monk His hands and His feet.

The conscientious Christian was filled with unspeakable delight, not unmixed with holy awe. You see the lesson: to taste the joy of religion you must perform its duties; to enter the inner court of sweet communion with God you must penetrate through.

I want you to open your Bible tonight to Matthew chapter 5. Matthew chapter 5. As I mentioned to you, I have recently been able to release a book called The Only Way to Happiness, and it’s a book b.

Matthew Blessed are the poor in spirit — The word μακαριοι, here rendered blessed, properly means happy, and it may be better to translate it so, because our Lord seems to intimate by it, not only that the dispositions here recommended are the way to future blessedness, but that they immediately confer the truest and most noble felicity.

It certainly was not while the Lord worked among men. While, then, the blessedness he spoke of belonged not to the poor because they were poor, yet it seemed to belong to them especially as a class, because they welcomed the Master and tried to share his life, while the rich and powerful as a class did not.

It runs indisputably all through the teaching of Paul and Luke, this tender love for the poor and. 5. Blessedness comes out of patient experience. Blessedness of thankfulness for being sustained. Blessedness of holy dependence under conscious weakness. Blessedness of peace and submission under God's hand.

Blessedness of fearlessness as to result of further trial. Blessedness of familiarity with God enjoyed in the affliction. Albert Barnes' Notes on the Whole Bible. Blessed is the man - That is, his condition is a happy or a desirable one. The word used here, אשׁר 'esher means properly, “happiness” or “blessedness.” It is found, however, only in the plural form and in the construct state, and takes the nature and force of an interjection - “ O the happiness of the man!” or “O happy man!”.

It consists of an introduction (Psalms ), respecting the blessedness of those who "consider the poor;" a bitter complaint against his enemies generally, and one enemy in particular (Psalms ); and a conclusion, in which prayer and an expression of confident hope are united (Psalms ).

What the Bible Says About Poverty. In the Bible, God speaks often of the poor and needy. He commands us to give generously to the less fortunate and to speak up on their behalf. To help you connect with God’s heart for the poor, we have compiled this list of Bible verses taken from the New International Version that speak to how God asks us to relate to and serve the less fortunate among us.

Thus the merciful consideration for "the poor, the fatherless, and the widow," shown in the Law of Moses, marked an immense uplifting in legislation; while the continuation of this same philanthropy, on religious grounds, was made of so much account by the prophets, that if it was neglected, men's external worship was an offence in the sight of God (Isaiah ;2; ; ; Jeremiah.

All which virtue with its sweetness checks and restrains, abounding as it does in natural resources for either soothing conscience or increasing grace.

Nay, goodness and holiness are not only the way to happiness but happiness itself; supposing there were not another life after this, yet that man is a happy man that keeps in the way of his duty.

His blessedness is here illustrated by a similitude: He shall be like a. The first misstep has to do with the shape of the whole book.
