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 life of those who are following King Jesus while here on earth. It will alter their life in four ways based on Matthew 5:1-6. Those who are following Jesus will be poor in spirit. They will mourn over their sins and the sins of others. They will exude a meek posture towards others. They will urgently desire to pursue righteousness.
Scripture: Matthew 5:1-6
