Ladies and Gentlemen, we need to know – What is our Proper Response?

Jesus taught us about our Blessed Attitudes or “Beatitudes” in Matthew 5:3-16:

God Blesses those who are poor and realize their need for Him, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.

God Blesses those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

God Blesses those who are humble, for they will inherit the whole earth.

God Blesses those who hunger and thirst for His kind of Justice, for they will be satisfied.

God Blesses those who are merciful, for they will be shown His kind of Mercy.

God Blesses those whose hearts are pure, for they will see (experience) God-Jehovah

God Blesses those who work for His Peace, for they will be called the Children of God.

God Blesses those who are persecuted for doing right (Righteous deeds), for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.

God Blesses you when people mock you and persecute you and lie about you and say all sorts of evil things against you because you are My Followers (Disciples).

Be happy about it! Be very glad! For a great reward awaits you in Heaven. And remember, the ancient prophets were persecuted in the same way.

You are the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it has lost its flavor? Can you make it salty again? It will be thrown out and trampled underfoot as worthless.

You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden.

No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house, and throughout the entire nation.

In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your Heavenly Father – To God be the Glory great things He has DONE!

Dear ones, in these scriptures we have this list of POSITIVE action steps we can take to proclaim The Truth of how we should behave with one another. Simply put:

BE LIKE JESUS towards every person in our spheres of influence!

Holy Spirit of the Living LORD, we PRAY in agreement with Your Word that EVERYTHING we SAY and EVERYTHING that we DO will bring Glory and Honor and Grace and Truth to a world that is full of darkness and contempt towards all Believers.

For this world is not our permanent home; we are looking forward to an Eternal home yet to come. Therefore, let us offer through Jesus a continual sacrifice of Praise to God-Jehovah, proclaiming our allegiance to His Name.

And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God!  Heb 13:14-16

Rejoice in the LORD ALWAYS! Again, I say REJOICE!
