The Church in the World

We will conclude our study of the beatitudes, looking particularly at this last beatitude and the verses that follow. Why do we think that the Christian life should be easy and that if we are living right everyone will think well of us when Jesus says otherwise?  Consider these three points: 1. The blessed condition of the final beatitude (and it is a blessed condition), 2. The encouragement for our faith that is attached (v. 10-12), 3. The exhortation to exercise our faith in the world (v. 13-16).
