Blessings From Ashes Sermon | Ruth and Naomi

Passage: Ruth, Matthew 5:3-5 Romans 12:3

What a great joy we have in Jesus, who is able to transform the ashes of our disappointments and failures into beauty. The beatitudes are a series of blessings from Jesus that transformed the traditional understanding of what it meant to be blessed. Jesus does not state that it is the rich and powerful who are blessed but instead states that the kingdom of heaven belongs to the poor in spirit, that blessed are the meek, blessed are those who mourn. Join us for our new sermon series Blessings from Ashes, where we explore how Christ turns ashes into beauty.
