John MacArthur describes the eminent importance of the one word Blessed. He shows you how it can transform your attitude towards happiness-perhaps even redefine it. It happens when you deepen your commitment to the One who knows exactly what you need. And it all comes down to one word. Blessed. Not being blessed by looking to others, but being blessed by following our Lord. And knowing the only way to happiness is right here, right now.
Jesus' first recorded sermon in the Bible is a blueprint for being happy here on earth. And though His definition contains no prescriptions for acquiring cars, homes, or savings, it does require transformation and obedience. MacArthur examines Jesus' timeless definition of happiness, and explains that our reward for following Jesus' plan is citizenship in the kingdom of God--and an abiding joy that can never be taken away. Study guide and review included for individual or group study.
