Explaining the essence of the Sermon on the Mount of the beattitudes

1     Mathew 5:3-10

{3}   To be poor in spirit is to have a humble opinion and acknowledge your own helplessness they are sensitive to their own spiritual needs and rely on God. {4} Jesus was acquainted with grief, those who mourn are blessed; for there will come a day all tears shall be wipe away from their eyes and be comforted. {5}  A meek person is not weak but strong, gentle and kind in all circumstances especially humble and displays self-control, meekness is a personality trait and is a fruit of the Spirit. It should mark the Christian’s attitude towards a sinner. When Christ comes they will inherit the earth. {6} Those who hunger and thirst for righteousness ‘will be satisfied for they will be filled’ their desire for honesty and integrity as well justice in their society {7}  Those that are merciful are always compassionate showing God’s mercy and possess a forgiving spirit toward others who mistreat them for they will receive mercy from God. This grows out of one’s personal experience Mercy of God. {8}  The pure have singleness, in heart which has no hidden motive or selfish interest and is open, to all things and are pure in heart whose conscience are clean for they shall see God and are blessed. {9} Blessed are the peacemakers for they live in peace with all men, and are at peace with God for they shall be called sons of God. {10} When we are persecuted for doing good we accept it and willingly submit to it, for we are blessed as a child of God; for our integrity will expose the ungodliness’ we rejoice and are exceedingly glad for we process the Kingdom of God.
