On Wednesday, Jan. 18 at 6:00 PM the message "Blessed Are the Meek " was delivered at Gratia Community Church in Sioux Falls. This message was taken from Matthew 5:5.
Currently, Gratia Church starts studying the sermon on the mount. They focused on the third blessing which falls on the meek. Members were called to prepare themselves as vessels to contain God's blessing. Meekness and humility always go hand in hand. Jesus promised the meek to inherit the promised land which is the kingdom of God to believers. The messages focused on dealing with the short temper, hatred and wrong anger hidden in believers' life. They looked at the example of Moses by studying the historical event how he led Israelites to enter the Canaan land. By studying the history, members were humbled to examine themselves to ask God's help to overcome their impure parts.
As usual, they gathered to share their grace and reflections with one another with sincere hearts. They cherished each time that they could study the words of God together and grow in maturity.
