February 17, 2019 – Sixth Sunday after the Epiphany
Psalm 1:1-6; Epistle: 1 Corinthians 15:12-20; Gospel: Luke 6:17-26
“Blessed Are You” - Sermon Text: Luke 6:17-26 - Rev. Thomas Eggold
The Beatitudes are not a moral roadmap designed to lead us to heaven. They do not constitute a list of demands promising blessings in return. No, the Beatitudes bring blessings because they come to us as requirements of righteousness already met in Jesus. He is the one who has fulfilled every demand of the Law. He is the one who has taken away our sin and come to give us the Kingdom.
