Desperation – Upside Down

Desperation – Upside Down

What are you desperate for? Hunger and thirst are feelings that drive our desperation for nourishment and survival, but we can also be desperate for other things. Jesus said that we are blessed when we hunger and thirst for righteousness. Paul Hicks from Mackay Church of Christ is our guest speaker today exploring this upside down statement from Jesus.

This message is part of our series Upside Down: redefining the good life.

How can we claim that God is good when life isn’t always good? Where is God when life seems so unjust? Jesus introduced his followers to a way of thinking that challenged their understanding of success. He taught them that God’s kingdom doesn’t operate in the same way that the world’s kingdoms operate. How can we find the blessing, happiness and good fortune that Jesus spoke about? From Jesus and his ‘beatitudes’ we find a better way to understand God and a new way to live.
