Sarah Koontz & the Living by Design team invite you to join us for this quick, yet powerful study of spiritual blessedness. In the Beatitudes, Jesus Christ offers us a type of inner satisfaction and sufficiency that is not dependent on our current circumstances. They teach us that the divine joy we crave is found in Christ alone.
This deep, internal joy is not a mere feeling or fleeting emotion. It is a spiritual reality reflecting our position of favor with the Father. Because we are blessed by God and our eternal reward is secure, we can live righteously upon this earth.
Our free Beatitudes study will:
- Help you understand God’s Kingdom better.
- Invite God’s comfort into your earthly sorrows.
- Give you strength to extend God’s mercy to suffering souls.
- Motivate you to pursue holiness in your thoughts and actions.
- Infuse your daily life with purpose and resilience.
We pray that our free Beatitudes study will empower you to choose the eternal blessings from our Heavenly Father over the fleeting pleasures of this world. In this world of image-makers, let’s strive to become image-bearers of the King.
Topics Covered in our Free Beatitudes Study
Throughout the free Beatitudes study, you will receive daily e-mails including a brief Scripture reading, devotional, and shareable graphics. We will dedicate the first two days to developing a better understanding of the character of Christ and the reality of the Kingdom. Then we will spend five days digging deep into the profound blessedness of our Christian faith.
