For Theirs Is The Kingdom Of Heaven.
“Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 5:10 KJV
Matthew 5:10 AMPC declares, “Blessed and happy and enviably fortunate and spiritually prosperous (in the state in which the born-again child of God enjoys and finds satisfaction in God's favor and salvation, regardless of his outward conditions) are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake (for being and doing right), for theirs is the kingdom of heaven!”
When you surrender to Christ and follow His Way of doing things — He will lead and guide your path. When you surrender your heart and ways to God, choose to let the old things go. Choose to let the old man die. Let Christ do a new work within the borders of your heart.
When you surrender to Christ, and follow His commands, not everyone may agree with your lifestyle. When you are in Him, not everyone may not feel comfortable with your decisions. Choose to yield to God and surrender to His Way of doing things.
Surrendering to Christ is a choice. In fact, it’s a daily decision. Would you rather seek, submit and obey God and get His “Well done”? Or would you rather worship the praise of men? Choose to surrender to God. Seek His “Well done”. Follow His Word. Follow God’s Way of doing things. Don’t worship the opinion of man. Don’t be chained by their way of doing things. Surrender to God’s Way of doing things and get His results.
The world may not understand why you choose to worship Christ and surrender to His Way of doing things. When you surrender your life to Christ you are a brand new creature. When you are in Christ, your tastes change, your spiritual appetite changes, your desires change. When you are in Christ, you are set apart, you are different, you are made new — you are His.
Choose to obey Christ and get His results. Walk in His statues and get His results. Walk in His Word and allow His light to shine through you. Follow God’s Way of doing things — and He will guide your path. Let God give you His blueprint. “God blesses those who are persecuted for doing right, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.” Matthew 5:10 NLT
