Matthew 5:8 KJV Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

When you live by God’s standards you are projecting to the world that you wish to follow Jesus and live by His example. Following God’s commandments and statutes will always produce a pure heart. You should be reminded of the fruit of the Spirit that are outlined in Galatians 5:22-23 KJV, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. Demonstrating these character traits will show others that you have the peace of God in your heart. People sees the external you. God sees your heart

Matthew 5:7 KJV Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

Jesus was teaching those that followed Him to honor the Father by showing mercy for those who are possibly less fortunate. The Father always loves His children, and His children should express love to those that need compassion. You never do these acts of mercy for self-recognition. They instead are done because you would want the same done for you if the situation were reversed. There will come a day in your life when you require mercy as you make your way past unpleasant situations. Remember to trust Jesus for the power to assist others in times of need because Jesus’ power gives us hope.

Matthew 5:6 KJV Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

The Psalmist David revealed his hunger and thirsting for righteousness in Psalms 63:1-2 KJV “O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.”

To receive your tank of righteousness, you need to long for that full load of righteousness because of your seeking the Lord’s presence in your life. It should be your earthly desire to get to know Jesus personally while here on earth. Thus, when you get to Heaven it will be like old friends meeting again. What a friend you have in Jesus, my friends!

Matthew 5:5 KJV Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

Those that are meek know how to control their temper. The meek knows that there are positive results awaiting those who have patience. Difficult times are to be faced with the understanding that God is still in control. God’s will for your life will bless you beyond measure. People who are satisfied with the Lord’s presence will be blessed with peace amid the storms of life. I am reminded of the Christian hymn that has these words: “I am satisfied with Jesus; He means so much to me. He has suffered to redeem me. He has died to set me free. …But the question comes to me as I think of Calvary is my Master satisfied with me?” Meekness is a virtue that will build your character among friends.
