The Beatitudes in Matthew 5 outline Christ’s prescription for joy and blessing both in this life and in the life to come. Our struggles are a result of sin, but a careful study of the Beatitudes reveals a roadmap for the journey to freedom from the sins that make us so miserable. The purpose of Renewing the Heart is to encourage women to study the Word of God and to discover the freedom from sin that can be obtained as their hearts opened to the work of Christ. The study contains all the regular features found in the Following God series, including thought provoking study questions and sidebar extras. Each lesson of this eight-week study focuses on four Bible characters and how they were changed and renewed by the principles found in the Beatitudes.
