We all lose things throughout our lives – people, experiences, dreams and things. Mourning and grieving is one of the hardest parts of life. So what did Jesus mean when he said, “Blessed are those who mourn.”? Nick Waring from Common Ground Church of Christ in Townsville is our guest speaker today.
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.
