Continuing from his previous message, Bro. Jeff describes the blessings of hunger and mercy. It’s easy to see how mercy would be a blessing, but what about hunger? Find out here.
Matthew 5:6-7 (KJV)
6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.
Matthew 5:21, 27-28
21 Ye have heard that it was said of them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:
27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:

15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
8 The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.

5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
