Jesus Disciples Should Be Righteous

What are you working for?

Matthew 5:6  "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.

Jesus disciples are to have a different motivation in life, they are hungry and thirsty for those things that concern God, the motivation toward selfishness is supposed to be going away.

Maturity should come from your desire to live for the fulfillment of God's plans and purposes on earth, above all else we are focused on accomplishing his will instead of our own will.

What you hunger and thirst for will determine your righteousness, what we desire will show what kind of person we really are, if we are in a fierce battle everyday with our own sinful desires then we still have a lot of room to grow as a disciple.

We are God's agents for change in a world that is wreaked from the effects of sin. As God's agent for change my life needs to bring justice to the oppressed, healing to the broken, freedom to the addicted, love to the outcast and truth to the deceived. I need to live each day focused on changing this world one life at a time.

I pray Lord that I will desire what you desire, I want to be selfless and open to help those that are hurting.
