Mike Paget and Erica Hamence explore what it means to be "poor in spirit" and how the empty-handed find fullness in the kingdom of God.
Every year, millions of Christians around the world prepare themselves for Easter by recognising the season of Lent, a time to walk with God in anticipation, reflection and humility.
This Lent, Common Grace and The Bible Society invite us to create space in our busy lives, as we journey together through a central part of Jesus’ teaching and ministry: The Beatitudes.
We've invited Christian teachers from across the country to journey us through the Beatitudes across 40 days. Every five days we'll have a new video on one of the Beatitudes, along with bible readings and some spiritual practises that may help you explore each Beatitude more deeply.
This series has been produced in partnership with Common Grace and Bible Society Australia. Through this series we hope you are inspired, moved, convicted and confronted as we explore how Jesus calls us to beauty, generosity and justice in today’s world.
Shane Clifton and Brooke Prentis explore how "those who mourn" can find blessing, happiness and comfort in the Kingdom of God.
Matthew Tan explores what it means to be meek, rather than haughty, and how Jesus modelled this in his life, ministry, crucifixion and resurrection.
Karina Kreminski explores how our hunger and thirst for God to make right our hurting world leads us to participation in that work, and there we find fullness.
Kay Goldsworthy, the newly appointed Archbishop of Perth, reflects on receiving the transforming mercy of God, and how that shapes our own practise of showing loving kindness to others.
Rev Bob Mitchell, CEO of Anglican Overseas Aid, explores how the "pure in heart" will see God unfiltered, openly, without shame, knowing him, and being known by him.
"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God."
"Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."
