Charles Haddon Spurgeon had this to say about the writings of Thomas Watson: “There is a happy union of sound doctrine, heart-searching experience and practical wisdom throughout all his works…”

The Beatitudes

By: Thomas Watson

An exposition of Matthew 5:1-12

Introduction

Christian Reader,
I here present you with a subject full of sweet variety. This Sermon of Christ on the Mount is a piece of spiritual needlework, wrought with divers colors. Here is both usefulness and sweetness. In this portion of Holy Scripture, you have a summary of true religion—the Bible epitomized. Here is a garden of delight, where you may pluck those flowers which will deck the hidden man of your heart. Here is the golden key which will open the gate of Paradise! Here is the conduit of the Gospel, running wine to nourish such as are poor in spirit and pure in heart. Here is the rich cabinet wherein the Pearl of Blessedness is locked up. Here is the golden pot in which is that manna which will feed and revive the soul unto everlasting life. Here is a way chalked out to the Holy of Holies.

The opening verses of the best-known of all Christ’s sermons were handled by many Puritans, for the Beatitudes gave full scope to the combination of sound doctrine, practical wisdom and heart-searching application which characterized their preaching. To these general Puritan characteristics Thomas Watson added certain of his own: a master of a terse, vigorous style and of a beauty of expression, he could speak not only to win men’s understanding but also to secure a place for the truth in their memories. More than most of his generation he sought to follow the example of Christ’s teaching by employing all manner of illustrative material from common life, and with simplicity and charm he spoke words not easy to forget.

  27. Maurice Espin says:

    Hello, I would like a copy of this book so that I can tell others as well.

    • Hello Maurice,

      Search & Trace is a service to help Christians research particular topics by providing them with the pertinent resources, for free.

      We appreciate that some of you are thirsty for as much as we can find, but we ask that you request items as you need them. Rather than send one person all our material out at once, we prefer to taylor the delivery to the specific need.

      The ideal way to stay abreast of our resources is to “Subscribe” to our free updates – here (http://wp.me/26vgp).

      Another way you can help us is to tell others about the site, rather than forward the material to them yourself. This shows internet search engines that we are being widely accessed, which in turn increases the visibility and accessibility of our site to those needing assistance in their research.

      Thank you for your understanding in this regard.

      Your friends at Search & Trace

    This looks like a great website I just discovered!

    I would very much like a free copy of The Beatitudes by Thomas Watson. I am a Chaplain in the Army and currently I am stationed overseas. I have been preaching a series of messages on the Beatitudes and would very much appreciate this remarkable Puritan as another resource.

    Thanks very much in advance.
