Text: Matthew 5:6
Preacher: Rev. J.A. Abegunde
Hymn: BH 321
Matthew chapter 5 formed 7 of Jesus’ declaration known as Beatitudes. He began His ministry with the inaugural lecture. Beatitudes speak of kingdom values, that those that are called His disciples should seek to have.
Matthew 5-7 were not taught to the general people but those that have chosen to follow Him (Disciples).
Hunger and Thirst for righteousness means strong desire. According to Matthew 5:6, craving for values, blessings, and righteousness. Hunger for righteousness/strong craving for God is one of the great values we should seek for. Psalm 42:1-2 speaks about craving for more of God (always thinking about His relationship with God).
What is Righteousness???
Righteousness is being in a right relationship with God (be right with God!)
Righteousness means to do that which is RIGHT.
There is a hunger that must control some of the hungers that you may have, because… It’s a hunger that will help you get other hungers right, and that is the HUNGER FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS.
Righteousness does not only mean giving your life to Christ, it also means doing what is RIGHT! and you cannot be right with God without Christ.
Settle your relationship with Jesus Christ.
Right relationship with God will right every wrong…
