To His students, out on a remote unnamed hillside, Jesus tells the truth about someone.
This someone is humble, sorrowful, and meek. He hungers and thirsts for God. He is merciful, pure in heart and a peacemaker. Insulted, falsely accused and persecuted - yet somehow joyous and glad!
Is the Teacher describing His own heart and life?
I think so.
This is Jesus!
It is His blessed life we should first see here.
The good news is this. His life isn’t exclusively for Him. The Teacher has students.
Every student’s destiny is to enjoy the same kind of life as they observe in their Teacher.
The blessed life is coming to us as we become more like the Teacher.
That’s right isn’t it? The Teacher’s life gets on the inside of ours. Our life mixed up with His!
His story becoming our life story too!
