We are created to be fruitful. A fruitful life, according to Jesus, is the present manifestation of the future kingdom of heaven. Until we discover how we can be fruitful, nothing will give us true satisfaction and fulfillment. In his famous Sermon on the Mount, Jesus revealed the secret to fruitful life and disclosed its path in his teaching of the Beatitudes. Few people realize that Jesus was using the Beatitudes to reveal to us the process of significant personal and social transformation that leads us to fruitfulness. In this book we are not only going to unwrap but also embody this top secret of life delivered to us by Jesus Christ. We will journey through the eight progressive steps of personal and social transformation and continue on an upward spiral of a fruitful life. Samuel M.
