“Being a Doer of the Word”
What it Means to Walk in Christ’s Footsteps- A Study in Matthew Chapters 5-7
The religious rulers of Christ’s day made righteousness a set of rules to be followed. They taught if a person acted a certain way, talked a certain way, dressed a certain way, and followed the rules they taught then that person was righteous. These rulers had reduced righteousness to outward appearance and works. Christ was about to reverse the teachings of these religious rulers of His day.
1And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him: 2And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying, 3Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 4Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. 5Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. 6Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. 7Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. 8Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. 9Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. 10Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. 12Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. (KJV)
