Attitudes To Live By

  • Series: Sermon On The Mount: Roadmap To Maturity / 1.30.22 / Pt. 1

  • Matthew 5:1-16 (ESV) Seeing the crowds, he went up on the mountain, and when he sat down, his disciples came to him. 2 And he opened his mouth and taught them, saying: 3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. 5 “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. 6 “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. 7 “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy. 8 “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. 9 “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. 10 “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 “Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. 12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. 13 “You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people's feet. 14 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.

  • Verde Discussion Questions



    Break It Out:


    1. What is your favorite beatitude and why?
    2. What stood out to you, challenged you, or encouraged you from the sermon Sunday?

    Talk It Out:


    3. Describe a time when you felt especially poor in spirit—a time when you were keenly aware of your need for God. How did He meet you?
    4. In 2 Corinthians 7:10 Paul makes a distinction between godly and worldly sorrow. What’s the difference? Is there a time when you experienced either godly or worldly sorrow you can share?
    5. As Christians, how do we demonstrate mercy without condoning sinful behavior? Do you think the world sometimes confuses “mercy” with “tolerance”?
    6. How would you like to grow in meekness, personally? Is there a specific area of your life where meekness is especially lacking?
    7. As you grow in your faith, how are you seeing your desires increasingly conform to His desires?
    8. Would you consider yourself a peacemaker? Why or why not? How can you promote peace at work? At home? At church?
    9. What are some examples of Christian persecution in the US today? How should we respond to these forms of persecution?
    10. Why do you think we sometimes go through the motions of Christianity while our hearts are far from God? What are some signs that our hearts are drifting?

    Work It Out:


    11. Jesus ends with a call to impact the world – to be salt and light. How are we as a church changing lives – in our church, in our community, and in our world? Are there any new places where we can be salt and light?
    12. How can your small group pray for you?
