Thoughts on the Beatitudes (10) - Evan Gear
by Maggie Breckenridge on September 22nd, 2022
Matthew 5:7 — Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy. Mercy.We hear this word quite often. We use it in prayer and in pious conversation. But if we were asked to define it could we?So much of our Christian discourse is full of this sort of thing — the use of language that, when pressed, we really don’t understand. So, what is this thing called mercy? How shall we define it?I have h...  Read More

Thoughts on the Beatitudes (9) - Evan Gear
by Maggie Breckenridge on September 15th, 2022
Matthew 5:7 — Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.Mourning, meekness, hunger, mercy — these are the characteristics of one who is blessed. They build upon one another. The one who mourns his sin in light of the holiness of God — who has learned to compare himself to heaven’s standard — such a one will be a meek person. And the one who has thus learned meekness, who has seen his ...  Read More

Thoughts on the Beatitudes (8) - Evan Gear
by Maggie Breckenridge on September 8th, 2022
Matthew 5:6 — Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. I mentioned Abraham in the previous devotion. His life is very familiar to us but what we often fail to notice is the fact that his life is largely spent in between the pages of Scripture. The man lived to the ripe old age of 175 years (Gen. 25:7) and we know details of what roughly equates to two...  Read More

Thoughts on the Beatitudes (7) - Evan Gear
by Maggie Breckenridge on September 1st, 2022
Matthew 5:5 — Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. The meek. That word is a bit foreign to us, is it not? I cannot remember the last time I either heard it used or used it myself in a sentence. It is one of those Bible words which we have become familiar with in the context of church but no longer use in reference to the “real” world. So, the verse – this statement – loses some ...  Read More

Thoughts on the Beatitudes (6) - Evan Gear
by Maggie Breckenridge on August 11th, 2022
Matthew 5:4 — Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. Why might we mourn?We may mourn for many things. We may sorrow over loss and difficulty in this life. We often shed tears because an opportunity is lost, or our team was defeated, or because the supper is cold. We cry over our own folly and the tarnished reputations that they earn. We are sad to lose esteem before men. From th...  Read More

Thoughts on the Beatitudes (5) - Evan Gear
by Maggie Breckenridge on August 4th, 2022
 Bear with me as I draw out one last bit from the first of the beatitudes… Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. The poor have the reward of their poverty (such an odd thing to say, for it is gift not earnings) the kingdom of heaven now. There is, present tense, the kingdom. Another way to translate it would be, “of them is the kingdom of heaven.” That is, they are i...  Read More

Thoughts on the Beatitudes (4) - Evan Gear
by Maggie Breckenridge on July 28th, 2022
Matthew 5:3 — Blessed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the kingdom of heaven…Before moving on to a meditation on the second of the Beatitudes, I would like to lingerfor a moment longer on verse 3. This first pronouncement of blessing expects the presence of two realities in our world. Jesus speaks to us of poverty and kings. Clearly, he does so with assumption that we will have some sort of ex...  Read More
Communion Season 2022
by Maggie Breckenridge on July 28th, 2022
In August of 1742, a crowd of 50,000 gathered in Cambuslang, Scotland, for an outdoor communion service amidst the revivals of religion then erupting all throughout the Western world. The setting was the Great Awakening, which burst on the scene in 1735 with the preaching of Jonathan Edwards in Northampton, Massachusetts, and the conversion of George Whitefield at Oxford.The broader context of the...  Read More

Tim Foster preached his first sermon at IPC as an intern in the summer of 2006. The Johnsonfamily was away on vacation, of course. When I returned to the church office, I was greeted inthe hall with questions by Art Broadwick, who, as many of you will know, is not given toexaggeration. Our interaction went like this:“Have you listened to Tim’s sermon?”“No.”“Extraordinary.”“Extraordinary?”“Extraord...  Read More

Matt. 5:3 — Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.The king, exalted high on the mountain, opens his mouth and, in judgment, speaks hisauthoritative word.What does he say?How does he speak to the gathered mass of humanity? In condemnation? No, but inbenediction. He, like the great high priest emerging from making atonement for thepeople of Israel, lifts his voice to pr...  Read More

Thoughts on the Beatitudes (2) - Evan Gear
by Maggie Breckenridge on July 7th, 2022
Matt. 5:2 — And he opened his mouth and taught them…This verse and its context form a refrain in a children’s song that runs through my headas I read it. I can hear my children sing the words, “he went up on a moutaaa-iin, he satdown, and he opened his mouth…”The emphasis is on that last bit, he opened his mouth. It may seem like a little thing but itis profoundly important. Jesus does not merely ...  Read More
