Berlin Immanuel Church gathered on Sunday, January 7, starting a new series on the Beatitudes from Matthew 5:1-12. The precious teachings of Jesus that Matthew collected known as the sermon on the mount are a description of what every Christian is meant to be. These teachings are meant to be lived out as a lifestyle of those who were called into the Kingdom of heaven, through the power of the Kingdom. Matthew records the long sermon along with the miracles and healings Jesus performed to demonstrate that it is through the power of the Holy Spirit every believer can live that way. The teachings and healings of the ministry of Jesus are one unit that Matthew recorded in between two summaries of Jesus’s works, in Matthew 4:23 and Matthew 9:35.
