Steve Stewart, The Beatitudes for a Time of Crisis
Steve Stewart—pastor, church leader, and founder of Impact Nations—joined David Capes to talk about God’s work in his life and Impact Nations, an international organization dedicated to the whole gospel which means impacting whole persons, spiritually, economically, educationally and socially. Out of the Covid pandemic and the racial, political predicaments washing over us, Steve has written a terrific book entitled The Beatitudes for a Time of Crisis (Impact Nations Publishing, 2020). Like many others Steve has found solace, direction and inspiration in that first part of Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount. Steve talks with David about how one beatitude leads to the next, and how the gospel is not just about who’s going to heaven? It is about the whole person and what God intends for us here and now. That is why Steve says the beatitudes and the Sermon on the Mount deal with Kingdom citizens doing the right thing for the right reason. The beatitudes are both an invitation to share in God’s life and a paradox. Be sure to get his book and read it carefully.
