Happiness (Getting to Know Jesus One Chapter at a Time, Part 7)

Matthew 5:1-12

Jesus is at His subversive best in that part of Matthew's Gospel usually called The Sermon on the Mount. In a series of clipped images, Jesus portrays not how to be happy, but what happy people look like.

Below are links to a series of messages I presented on Jesus' sermon. The series is called The Happiness Project. In a few days, I'll pick this series back up again with thoughts on the balance of Matthew, chapter 5, which is really something of an explication of the points that Jesus makes in the first twelve verses.

The Poverty That Leaves You Rich

Good Grief

The People Who Make a Difference

The Diet That Will Make You Happy

What Mercy Does

The People Who See God

The People Who Make Peace

Happy When the World Turns Away
