All Who Are In the Kingdom of God are Blessed — Dallas Willard

All Are Blessed in the Kingdom of God

Jesus announced in the Beatitudes that even the most deprived and insignificant people on earth could be blessed by living in the kingdom: the poor, those who were grief-stricken, those without reputation or standing (the meek), and so forth. About them he said, “Blessed are they, for theirs is the kingdom of God” (Matt. 5:3–10; Luke 6:20–23). The blessedness was not in their condition of being poor, mournful, or disrespected.

Their future in God is secured, and their present condition redeemed. Forever. No matter what.
