I am blessed

Bible commentators read the Beatitudes and muse over some of the Lord's words.  We get what it's like to mourn.  Disciples of the Lord do hunger and thirst for righteousness.  But what does it mean to be "poor in spirit?"  Or to be "pure in heart?"  There is not always a consensus as to what Jesus was getting at in some of those Beatitudes.

Still, one thing believers can be certain of is that "I am blessed" and can count on:

Being part of God's kingdom right now
Receiving His comfort
Inheriting the earth
Receiving the righteousness of God
Being shown mercy
One day seeing God face to face
Being called a Son or Daughter of God

Yes, we are blessed!
