I am certain (in my thinking) that your pastor has showed the difference between the preaching of Jesus, and even that He sent his disciples to preach in the same manner, with what might be called “Kingdom Preaching”, prior to His immediate crucifixion.
This was in keeping with His presentation initially as King, and then as Savior. Let us remember those Kingdom principles are also appropriate for any man who wants to be blessed and a blessing.
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the gentle, for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.
Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me.
Rejoice and be glad, for you reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under feet by men,
You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden;
Nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lamp
stand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.
Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:1-16)
