I have really enjoyed studying these chapters in my pathway class this week. We learn about the sermon on the mount and I love the teachings. Jesus selected twelve special disciples and testified to the multitude of there divine calling:"Blessed are ye if ye shall give heed unto the words of the twelve show I have chosen form among you to minister unto you, and to be your servants; and unto them I have given power." I loved this because it is true for our day as well. I know the prophet and apostles are ordained of the Lord and we will be blessed it we listen to them. Here are some of the other messages that were taught as well:
Blessed are all they who do hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled with the Holy Ghost.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers.
Blessed are all they who are persecuted for my name's sake
The scriptures then talk about the salt of the earth and so many other great lessons. I can only imagine what it would have been present at this, to be taught personally by the savior and how amazing that must have been.
