It’s easy to say that you are a Christian! If everybody was a Christian that says they were a Christian, then this world would be a very different place! I believe that this world can be and should be different! And this is why we have to stop playing games and get real!
Jesus challenges is in Matthew 5:1-12 to be different from the rest of the world. He challenges us to be: “Poor In Spirit” – this is humility that flows out of the realization that we are nothing without Jesus. “Mournful” – this is sorrow for my sin because I realize that my sin gets in the way of everything good that God has for me and this world that I live in. “Meek” – This is the gentle practice of allowing the Holy Spirit to control the power of God that flows to and through me. Power without control is very damaging!
We can do this! You and I can move out of the natural and into the supernatural. We need to take a vital step and it flows right out of the next Beatitude. Matthew 5:6 “Blessed are they that hunger and thirst for righteousness for they shall be filled! We will take some time this week on this blog to try and grow our hunger and thirst for the things of God. I hope to see you back on this page tomorrow. Until then, enjoy the journey and keep it real!
