Matthew 5:10 - 8th Beatitude

Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

In this discussion, Steve Gregg explores the 8 Beatitudes outlined in Matthew 5 and explains how they encapsulate the values of the Kingdom of God. He emphasizes the importance of rejecting the values of the world and rejoicing in persecution for righteousness' sake, as it can be a positive force that drives one closer to God. Gregg also notes the distinction between being persecuted for one's faith and simply facing opposition for doing wickedness, and highlights the value of being counted worthy to suffer shame for the name of Jesus.
