Pastor Matt takes us through two of the Beatitudes (Jesus’ introduction to the Sermon on the Mount).  The first is – “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs in the Kingdom of Heaven.”  Jesus defines being blessed as being included in God’s kingdom.  What this means is that we are blessed even in the midst of struggles with mourning, persecution, depression, addiction, whatever we might face.  Being blessed is all about what Christ has done, not about how we feel.
