Jesus taught His disciples (those who were committed to following Him) what it meant to be His disciple. He gives a series of “blessed’s” or promises that will fully come to fruition when Jesus returns for the people of God. But these blessed’s/promises will certainly alter the lives of those who are following King Jesus while here on earth. It will alter their life in four ways based on Matthew 5:7-12. Those who are following Jesus will be merciful. They will be pure in heart. They will be peacemakers. They will indirectly be persecuted because of their faithfulness in obedience to King Jesus.
Scripture: Matthew 5:7-12
