Matthew 5:1) And seeing the multitudes, He went up on a mountain, and when He was seated His disciples came to Him.
Matthew 5:2) Then He opened His mouth and taught them, saying:
Matthew 5:3) “Blessed are the poor in spirit, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 5:4) Blessed are those who mourn, For they shall be comforted.
Matthew 5:5) Blessed are the meek, For they shall inherit the earth.
Matthew 5:6) Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled.
Matthew 5:7) Blessed are the merciful, For they shall obtain mercy.
Matthew 5:8) Blessed are the pure in heart, For they shall see God.
Matthew 5:9) Blessed are the peacemakers, For they shall be called sons of God.
Matthew 5:10) Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 5:11) “Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake.
Matthew 5:12) “Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

So basically all those who follow Jesus Christ are blessed, for at least one point in our lives we have been at least a handful of these… the main point, I think anyway, is that we keep the mindset… not always mourning for those that have died, but mourning for the world that has fallen into sin, God sent his Son to wash our sins and purify our hearts. As Christians we all should be peacemakers. However we all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, and it’s only through Him that we are worthy… so praises be to God!
