A study of the Beatitudes by Janet Dyke
As Christians, we may hear God calling us to something that seems strange or unexpected, and may ask him “Seriously? Is that really what you want of me?”.
Throughout the Old Testament we read of people having exactly this response, then following God anyway and achieving amazing things. God still asks surprising things of His people who are willing to listen, and in my experience, those who trust and obey Him will, like Moses, Abraham, Gideon and many others, be blessed by God.
