Scripture Text: Matthew 5:1-10
1 "And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him:
2 And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,
Steps to Joy!!!
Illustration: A little girl asked her mother, "If God is bigger than us & He lives in us, wouldn't He show through?"
Point!! If we're Christians, when people see us, Jesus ought to show through us.
That is exactly what God has always intended! In fact, back "In the beginning," in Genesis 1:26, the Bible tells us, "Then God said, 'Let us make man in our image, in our likeness ..." In other words, we were created to become like Jesus. From the very beginning, God's plan has been to make us like His Son. In all of creation, only human beings are made in God"s image, in His likeness.
2,000 years ago, Jesus stood on a mountainside near the Sea of Galilee. Thousands of people have come to listen to Him. And He delivers some of the most challenging statements we'll ever hear. They're recorded in Matthew 5:1-10, & we call them the Beatitudes.

5. "Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy."
6. "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God."
7. "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God."
8. "Blessed are those who are persecuted..."
There are 2 kinds of people: "thermostat" people & "thermometer" people. A thermometer reflects the climate of the room. If the room is cold, it's cold. If the room is hot, it's hot.
