The address says it all. God wants us to come to him as children of a loving father who don’t care about the right words and don’t care about bugging him too much. They come with confidence and expectation because they know this is the man who loves them and has proven it 1,000 times.
This is big. This is really big. You can tell it is big when Jesus sits down, when his disciples come to him, and then he opens his mouth. This is not some casual conversation that Jesus is having. This is life changing, destiny altering, light shining stuff that Jesus is about to say. And Jesus does not disappoint. He drops the beatitudes on us. Matthew 5:1-12.
