Matthew 5: 6 “How blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness!
for they will be filled. source
We can hunger and thirst for many things; but, only one thing can we can hunger and thirst for we are guaranteed we will be filled with.
If we hunger and thirst for Him He will surely supply His Righteousness to us.
He says so right here, Verse 6, Matthew, chapter 5.
Sermon on the Mount.
The only Perfect Sermon ever recorded.
Quiet. Cool. Rainy.
There’s something pleasant about a day like today — if your life experiences are mine.
And if not, a day like today just might be gloomy.
(Too many of them day after day, would be to me too 🙂 )
No two lives are alike. No two witnesses report the same event exactly the same.
Does that make one account false?
If one was flat-out lying and did not report what they actually experienced; yes.
The Gospels of Scripture.
Matthew. Mark. Luke and John.
Are their accounts exactly the same?
If you have read the whole of them you know each is different even when recording the same event; or one leaving a happening out altogether.
Is either of them wrong?
If they are (and they are not) that means the Bible cannot be trusted.
IF they had recorded exactly the same about every single event THEN their recordings would be suspect.
Life experiences shape or perhaps disfigure us individually and uniquely.
BUT GOD heals us all the same by the Same means – The Blood of JESUS and His Scripture applied by Holy Spirit.
So gloomy or pleasant, we who have believed, know the SON is always interceding for us, always with us whether the sun is hiding or shining; whether the wind is gentle or howling; HE is always with us and His Face shines upon us.
Romans 8: 34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. source
