Matthew 5:7 - 5:8 (Beatitudes 5 - 6)

Sermon on the Mount
Sermon on the MountSteve Gregg

In this discourse, Steve Gregg expounds on the fifth and sixth Beatitudes from Matthew 5:7-5:8. He interprets mercy as a compassionate action towards those who are in need of it, such as the poor, instead of demanding rights or enforcing justice. Gregg also discusses the importance of forgiveness and how it is a continuous act of extending trust to those who have wronged us. He concludes by explaining the significance of having a pure heart, which entails being undiluted, uncorrupted, and unpolluted, and how it leads to being a peacemaker and ultimately seeing God.
