The Kingdom of God

 Matthew 5:3-4

"You're blessed when you're at the end of your rope. With less of you there is more of God and his rule.

"You're blessed when you feel you've lost what is most dear to you. Only then can you be embraced by the One most dear to you.“ (The Message)

The first two Beatitudes are about emptying, preparing. The Kingdom of God will bring a revolution. God will restore God’s people to “...[God’s] image, make them reflecting [God’s] nature...”. But first out image needs  to go. Old habits and thought patterns need to go. We must be ‘born again’. Are you ready?
