FEBRUARY 27 – JESUS

2/27 Matthew 5:1-12
1 One day as the crowds were gathering, Jesus went up the mountainside with his disciples and sat down to teach them. 2 This is what he taught them: 3 “God blesses those who realize their need for him, for the Kingdom of Heaven is given to them. 4 God blesses those who mourn, for they will be comforted. 5 God blesses those who are gentle and lowly, for the whole earth will belong to them. 6 God blesses those who are hungry and thirsty for justice, for they will receive it in full. 7 God blesses those who are merciful, for they will be shown mercy. 8 God blesses those whose hearts are pure, for they will see God. 9 God blesses those who work for peace, for they will be called the children of God. 10 God blesses those who are persecuted because they live for God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs. 11 “God blesses you when you are mocked and persecuted and lied about because you are my followers. 12 Be happy about it! Be very glad! For a great reward awaits you in heaven. And remember, the ancient prophets were persecuted, too.
JESUS
Jesus gives us the rules for living. We seek to glorify Him. The only way we can do this is to understand the Kingdom rules-Jesus is God’s everything. Obedience first develops a deep-seated understanding of how important people are. People count with Jesus. He died that we might have life. We live so that others might see Jesus in us. Serve the Lord will gladness and glorify His name by what you do everyday.
