Blessed – Bible Study

Reading: Matthew ch 5 v 3 – 12

Questions for reflection and study:

  1. In our society who are the “haves” and the “have nots”?
  2. Is there a Beatitude you particularly relate to? and why? Are there any you don’t relate to? why?
  3. Which Beatitude would you like to be true of you and why?

There are also questions from Ven Gavin Collins who spoke on Sunday:-

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled”. V6.

  1. How do you understand “righteousness”?
  2. How do you see God’s righteousness displayed in Jesus?
  3. How are we “made righteous” or “counted righteous” in him?
  4. What difference should that make to the way you live your life?
  5. What difference does that make?
  6. How “hungry and thirsty” are you for righteousness: in your life? in our society? in the world?
  7. What can you do to increase that appetite?  And how might God be calling you to respond?
