Signs of the Times
Rev. John L. Kent, M.A., in an article in The Expository Times Edinburgh, Midlothian, Scotland
[See Matt. 5:3–11]. Why did he [Jesus] begin his every sentence with the word "blessed" unless he was emphasizing the life of joy to which he was calling them? "Blessed. ... Blessed. ... Blessed." This is Christ's [Jesus'] prescription for the life of secure gladness. Here is the basis for a settled and unshakable felicity. To men who were solemnly straining to conform to the exacting demands of the Mosaic law, he was offering the life with the joy that nothing could take away.
It depends on a right relationship with our brother men. Think of the moments when we have known fulness of joy, and we will acknowledge that they have been times when we have been in completest accord with our fellow men. Soldiers caught up in the spirit of camaraderie, workmen losing themselves in their corporate endeavor, choristers singing with heart and voice, missioners seeking to win their brethren for Christ, and a multitude more, will tell you that their finest hour has been when they were least conscious of themselves, fully surrendered in the fellowship and service of their brothers.
