“Rejoice and Be Glad”

May 25th, 2008

“Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven…”

                                (Matthew 5:12)

Introduction:    It is always a delight to return to the Great Galilean Ministry of Jesus, and his Sermon on the Mount.  Notice that Jesus does not endorse the Gothic, but  he endorses gladness.

I.                   A brief phrase – a dominant ________________ (5:12).

II.                We need to hear this again…

A.    this __________________

B.    this __________________

C.    this __________________

D.    this __________________

Conclusion:    How are you being?  Are you more defined by the brightness of light or the bitterness of darkness; by cheer or by drear?  The Galilean campaign would eventually collapse because Jesus would not conform to popular messianic expectations.  Jesus always evokes commitment or collapse.
