Complete in Jesus

By Rob Albright
    The words of Jesus in Matthew 5:1-12 give us the way for every disciple to be complete and blessed in Christ. These words tell us how to be spiritual and each characteristic describes the new life in Christ. Each “beatitude” is important and needs to be a part of our life. Jesus points us to the true way to be really happy. The beatitudes give us the best possible life.
    You can actually see the difference between a Christ-like life and the life of a non-Christian. The Christian and the non-Christian live different lives. For those living the Christian life, these characteristics take time to develop. Once the Christian begins to add these beatitudes to his or her life, the Christian will find the highest form of happiness. These beatitudes will be a part of every Christian seeking the kingdom of God (Matthew 6:33)
