Home Church Video: Staking Our Claim on Freedom in Christ ~ Study 17C ~ The Valley of Freedom ~ Step Four: The Satisfaction of Righteousness

God designed us for joy, so it is no surprise that he consistently speaks of what most satisfies the human soul. 

Each of the Beatitudes in Jesus’ sermon on the mount directs us along the path to freedom in our Savior. When Jesus comes to the fourth Beatitude, “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied,”[1] he directs us to the greatest satisfaction of all, to be like him.

In our third look at this Beatitude, we focus on allowing ourselves to hunger and thirst for righteousness the way a blind man expressed his desperation to see, and to anticipate satisfaction the way a blind man wanted his sight restored.

Join us as we pursue the gracious gift of satisfaction in righteousness that is ours through faith in Jesus Christ.
