The Merciful - Pt 2 (Ep 3)

May 15, 2020 by: Ryan Joki| Series: The Beatitudes


Who would you consider to be the fortunate in life? Is it those who are born into wealth and privilege? Is it those born with the innate ability to entertain millions while accumulating great riches? Are they those who can transform society with their great minds? Or are they merely those who have a good job, good health, and people who love them?

This is a question that Pastor Ryan is currently exploring over a series of messages on a section of Scripture known as “The Beatitudes.” In this passage, Jesus describes those whom He considers to be the truly fortunate, and the list He comes up with is unlike anything we would ever imagine. In the fifth characteristic in this list, Jesus states that the merciful are blessed: “for they shall receive mercy.”

What does it mean to be merciful? Who should we express mercy to? How do we become merciful? These are questions that Pastor Ryan is currently exploring in a message entitled, “The Merciful – Part 2,” and yesterday, in DAY TWO of this message, he explained that mercy is expressed both in caring for someone’s spiritual and physical needs. Now, in DAY THREE, he explains both the OBJECT and MEANS to mercy.
