Day 159- Richmond, Virginia: Righteousness
We have an obligation to one another to uphold the highest standards, in order to bring about justice throughout the world. We could choose to ignore this responsibility that we have towards one another or we could strive to achieve the ultimate goal towards a life filled with righteousness for us all to indulge in. God wants us to spoil one another in love and peace. There is no moral crime against helping each other grow in divine love.
There is no sin in preaching the good news from the Word of God in order for us all to be able to realize what we have to offer Jesus, with both our dedication and commitment to serving the Lord our God. If these are the facts presented before us, why do we struggle so much with embracing one another? If this is the case in front of us, why do we spend more time arguing with one another instead of uplifting one another? The choice falls on us on whether we want to embrace the teachings of Jesus, the Son of God, or to turn our back on what many perceive as the mastery of life through our profound faith.
At the end of the day we all must answer to our Father individually, but collectively we display our true desires to either be recognized as a complete Body of Christ or to be viewed as a divided civilization that lacks true faith. From Matthew, in the first part of “The Beatitudes“, we are taught that, “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the gentle, for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy”. Amen. These are the teachings from Jesus that we must abide by, in order to be saved.
The words presented before us in the Bible are the truth that will set us free. When we are humble, God will write our name in the Book of Life. When we mourn, God will provide us comfort and security. When we are gentle, we will gain the Kingdom of God. When we long to be filled with the Holy Spirit, we will have our thirst quenched. Finally when we give mercy, we will receive eternal mercy for the sins that we have committed against God.
