Psalm 103:8-13

“The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love. He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor his anger forever; he does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us. As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;”

  • We should sit in awe of God, who loves us so much that, even though He knew us on our worst day, He still sent His Son to die for us so that we may live with Him forever. This is unbelievable mercy and grace, and a greater love cannot be found. We are so undeserving, yet so blessed.
  • How can we ever justify feeling cheated by our situations or circumstances?
  • How can we keep from singing His praise?

Dear Lord, thank you for loving us so much that you would send your only Son to die in our place so that we might be forgiven of our sins, and thank you for the promised eternity in Glory for those who submit their heart, mind, and soul to you. May we be faithful to You as You are faithful to us. Amen

Matthew 5:11-12

“Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” These are words from Jesus instructing us to share His love and provision with the lost world. We all have room for improvement in sharing our Lord, and we must understand that insults, persecution, and false accusations, may come, but we will be blessed when we are obedient. The way we live our lives may show that we are good people, but our intentional conversation will challenge others hearts, if it is centered on Christ. What are the chances that people have heard you talk about, or share, Jesus? Would anyone ever accuse you of standing up for Jesus? Would anyone say that you lived your life for Him? If you were accused of telling others about Jesus, and brought to trial, would there be enough evidence to convict you? Is your heart for Jesus, and your heart for a lost world, committed enough to get you out of your comfort zone?

Matthew 5:10

“Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” Persecution, in one form or another, will find everyone who is truly following Christ. If you have not experienced persecution because of your Christian walk, you either need to strengthen your commitment, or prepare and understand that it is coming. 2 Timothy 3:12 “Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted,”

Matthew 5:8

“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.” A pure heart is not trying to be a good person, it is having a heart like Christ, that leads your actions. It is achieved only through a growing relationship with Christ, which must be our number one passion above everything else.

Matthew 5:6

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.” If you truly hunger and thirst for righteousness, you can only satisfy your hunger with Jesus. What do you truly hunger and thirst for?

Matthew 4:21-22

“Going on from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John. They were in a boat with their father Zebedee, preparing their nets. Jesus called them, and immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him.” When Jesus calls you to follow Him, your obedience to follow Him should be immediately. Whether He is calling you for the first time, to give your life over to Him, or you have been a Christian for a long time, do not delay in obeying the One who loves you and died for you. His love never fails, and His path is always right.

Matthew 4:18-20

“While walking by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon (who is called Peter) and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen. And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Immediately they left their nets and followed him.” The correct response to Jesus is, “Yes Lord”, and the correct time to respond is immediately. God will never tell you to get your life right and then come to me, but He does say to come to Him, and He will make your life right. A calling from God has one correct response, immediate obedience. Dear Lord, may we walk with You daily, remaining in the center of Your will, so that we recognize where You are leading us. May our only answer be, “Yes Lord”, and may we never delay in being obedient. Amen
