B Attitudes The Persecuted (Thirty Second Devotional)

Devotional
The true test of a persons faith comes in the midst of persecution. It is easy to say all the right things when you are surrounded by Christians. It takes faith to stand firm in your faith among non believers. Often times you will be rejected when you stand up for what is right in God's eyes.
 
 
 
Scripture Reference
Matthew 5:10
Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
 
 
 
 
Action Point
Take a stand for what you believe in. Stand up for what is right. If you face persecution, you will know that you are doing something right.

B Attitudes The Peacemakers (Thirty Second Devotional)

Devotional
Who are the peacemakers? They are the ones who seek to bring peace. When people are fighting, they are the ones who try to bring reconciliation. They don't just talk about peace, but instead they have peace, and actively engage in bringing about peace.
 
 
 
 
Scripture Reference
Matthew 5:9
Blessed are the peacemakers,
For they shall be called sons of God.
 
 
 
 
Action Point
True peace can only come through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Seek peace in all that you do. It is that peace within you that will bring about peace in the lives of others around you.

B Attitudes The Pure In Heart (Thirty Second Devotional)

Devotional
What does it mean to be pure in heart? I don't know a person alive that can say they have a pure heart. Solomon wrote in Ecclesiastes 7:20 "For there is not a just man on earth who does good And does not sin." The only way to have a pure heart is by the blood of Jesus that was shed for the remission of sin.
 
 
 
 
Scripture Reference
Matthew 5:8
Blessed are the pure in heart,
For they shall see God.
 
 
 
 
Action Point
As Christians, we are forgiven. Our garments that were once stained with sin, have been washed in the blood of the Lamb. Though we may sin, our hearts are pure in the sight of God.

B Attitudes The Merciful (Thirty Second Devotional)

Devotional
As God has shown mercy towards us, we are to show mercy towards others. If God were to seek justice, we would all be condemned, but because Christ paid the penalty, we have received both mercy and grace. Because of Jesus, we don't receive the judgement that we deserve but instead we receive the free gift of salvation that we don't deserve.
 
 
 
Scripture Reference
Matthew 5:7
Blessed are the merciful,
For they shall obtain mercy.
 
 
 
 
Action Point
Be merciful towards others, and let them see the Christ that is in you. Love them as Christ loves you, and forgive them as Christ has forgiven you.

B Attitudes Thirst For Righteousness (Thirty Second Devotional)

Devotional
As Christians, there should be a hunger to live righteous before God. It is more than just a preference. It is a need that comes from deep within. To a Christian, a right relationship with God is just as important as food and water. When you are in a right relationship with God, you will be filled with the fruits of the Spirit, and the living water.
 
 
 
Scripture Reference
Matthew 5:6
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
For they shall be filled.
 
 
 
 
Action Point
Strive to live a life that is pleasing to God. Seek a right relationship with Him. Even though we often fall short of His glory, we are made righteous through faith in Jesus Christ as pour Lord and Savior.

B Attitudes The Meek (Thirty Second Devotional)

Devotional
Who are the meek? These are the ones who let others stand in the spotlight while we are content to be in the background. Remember that it is only when we step back that Jesus can shine in and through us. If we are standing in the spotlight, people will not be able to see Jesus. 
 
 
Scripture Reference
Matthew 5:5
Blessed are the meek,
For they shall inherit the earth.
 
 
Action Point

Take a step back, and let Jesus shine in and through you. It is by His example that we are to live our lives. It is only when we step back that Jesus is truly glorified.

B Attitudes Those Who Mourn (Thirty Second Devotional)

Devotional
Those who mourn are those who have repented of their sin. Not only are we to admit that we are a sinner, but we are to repent. This is a two step process. The first part is turning from sin, and the second is turning towards God. As you turn towards God, the life that you once were living will no longer appeal to you. 
 
 
Scripture Reference

Matthew 5:4
Blessed are those who mourn,
For they shall be comforted. 
 
 
Action Point
When you turn from sin, and turn towards God, He will give you peace. The weight of the sin you once carried, will be lifted, and you will have comfort in the loving arms of the Father.

B Attitudes Poor In Spirit (Thirty Second Devotional)

Devotional
In the "B" attitudes, Jesus teaches us how we are to live the Christian life. What does it mean to be poor in spirit. It simply means that we recognize we are spiritually bankrupt. A person that does not believe they are a sinner, doesn't believe they need a Savior. It is the sinner who repents that will see the kingdom of heaven.
 
 
 
Scripture Reference
Matthew 5:3
"Blessed are the poor in spirit,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
 
 
 
Action Point
The first blessing is easy. Just admit that you are like everyone else. We have all sinned, and are in need of salvation. If you have already received Jesus as your Lord and savior, you have already received the blessing.

Not Our Word's Alone (Thirty Second Devotional)

Devotional
Our words are only a small part when bringing the gospel message to the world. More importantly is the working of the Holy Spirit and the power of God. We can only speak the words and share the message, but it is God who does the saving when a person receives Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.
 
 
Scripture Reference
1st Thessalonians 1:5
For our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Spirit and in much assurance, as you know what kind of men we were among you for your sake.
 
 
Action Point

Although we can't save a person, we need to share the message of salvation. It is not our words, but the power that is in the words we speak that will lead them to the Lord.

Power To Impact Lives (Thirty Second Devotional

Devotional
Many times, ministers don't get to see the full impact of their ministry. I often times hear preachers talk about the people who had encouraged them, and the words and wisdom that they gave. The words that were spoken several years ago are still ministering to people today.
 
Scripture Reference
1st Thessalonians 1:8
For from you the word of the Lord has sounded forth, not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place. Your faith toward God has gone out, so that we do not need to say anything.
 
Action Point

What we say and do today has the power to impact the lives of future generations. Send forth the word of the Lord, that others may hear, and and send it forth.
