Sermon 7: Blessed are the Merciful: Matthew 5:7

Aug 9, 2023    Pastor Joel Porcher

The progression laid out by Christ in the Sermon on the Mount to this point has emphasized the connection between who we are and how we think about ourselves. Matthew 5:7 redirects this progression into a new direction by showing how who we are shapes how we think about and relate to others. God wants us to understand that a fundamental part of being a Christian is reflecting God’s disposition toward sinners in their misery.
