TODAY’S MEDITATION – Blessed are those who… (Matthew 5, 6, 7).

My brother, my sister, are you blessed by the Lord? How do you know you are? You see, the Word of God clearly states who the Lord blesses… This question is worth asking when we see how today’s world has become so evil that it looks like everything is just going upside down. Just listen to the news to hear how abominations is being turned into normality by our societies. And the worse thing is that abomination is also increasing within the Body of Christ as many church-goers attend churches first to bet blessed, not to seek the Lord. For more than a year now, that I have been writing these daily meditations, I have observed that the meditations inviting people to seek God or obey His commands get less ‘Like’ and less comments than those I recall the promises and blessings of God… My friends, we have to be honest with ourselves, for GOD’S BLESSINGS ARE CONDITIONAL, the Bible says: “If you follow my decrees and are careful to obey my commands, 4 I will send you rain in its season, and the ground will yield its crops and the trees their fruit. 5 Your threshing will continue until grape harvest and the grape harvest will continue until planting, and you will eat all the food you want and live in safety in your land” (Leviticus 26:3-5). Yes, how sad sometimes to see that the even churches have not spread the Good News or the Full Gospel, but instead the gospel of money, wealth and blessings, so much that many Christians live a worldly life without fear of the Lord… just look at our churches: even the offering and tithes have now been used to feed some selfish ambitions of church leaders, while some people within those same churches have nothing to eat: “bring all the tithes of that year’s produce and store it in your towns, so that the Levites (who have no land allotted to them or any inheritance of their own) and the foreigners, the fatherless and the widows who live in your towns may come and eat and be satisfied, and so that the Lord your God may bless you in all the work of your hands” (Deuteronomy 14:28-29). Yes, instead of looking for the Kingdom of God and righteousness first, many believers are looking for their personal comfort first (Matthew 6:33). My brother, my sister, where do you stand, because the day of the Lord is near? This question is important for you to consider about yourself. My friends, today let’s all read the chapters of Matthew 5, 6, 7 to check or re-position ourselves by assessing the way we obey Christ teaching’s, because being a Christian is being an ambassador of Christ’s values and not only being one of those who bear the mark of a Christian because they are going to a Christian church on Sundays, but they do not truly believe or apply the teaching and commandments of Christ. Stay blessed in Jesus’ name.
