"RIGHTEOUSNESS AND BLESSEDNESS"
Intro: Trouble with world today - war - sickness - crime. Not any single manifestation of sin, but sin itself. The church's answers to the world's ills lie in this verse. Ours is not the task of reforming society - converting world from sin.

B. To desire supremely not at rest or satisfied.
1. "As the heart panteth after the water brooks."
2. To be conscious of desperate need of help.
V. "HAPPY" WHY? "THEY SHALL BE FILLED."
A. This is gospel of grace.
B. Gift of God.
