As we continue through the beatitudes, the Holy Spirit is challenging us all to evaluate and reflect on who we are in Christ and what it means to follow Him. From being humble to seeking righteousness, we are on a journey of faith.
A new school week begins tomorrow (or for some a new work week). Take a minute to look around and notice where God is working and join in through His empowering. If you see one mourning, mourn with them and provide comfort. If you find yourself taking on pride that is not from Him, repent and change the attitude. If you notice you are not being as gentle as Christ Himself, ask Him to help you to reflect Him.
Our Father is waiting to pour His spirit of power over us and in us so that we can be the salt and light to the earth, one that is longing for hope and redemption. Let this be a week that we are all workers in the vineyard reaping the harvest of God.
