Our lasting happiness and security in this world is not based on having everything go smoothly, or even having all of our physical needs met. Instead Jesus wants us to live a “blessed” life – to have what is sometimes called a “sacred delight”.

This “sacred delight” is found in the Beatitudes, sometimes they are known as the “beautiful attitudes”. They are eight “attitudes which should be in you” when you know Jesus and live as a member of His wonderful kingdom. In this nine part series we consider the context and purpose of the Beatitudes, as well as taking a closer look at each attitude and the importance of that attitude for our daily life.
