"Who Will See God?"
Matthew 5:8
 
 
Teaching: Only those who are pure in heart are blessed and will see God.
 
Main Points:
1.  Men are prone to assess their blessedness by mere outward behavior.
2.  God does not stop at mere outward behavior—God weighs the heart.
3.  God promises to bless the pure in heart.
