The Kingdom Lifestyle

The Be-attitudes are the Kingdom Lifestyle… the Kingdom Attitudes! (Mt. 5:1-12)

These are the things I’m aiming at… not because I need approval, but because they reflect a transformed reality within! I live from a position of approval!

  1. to be poor in spirit,
  2. sensitive about what touches the heart of God,
  3. embracing a spirit of meekness,
  4. hungering and thirsting for righteousness,
  5. offering mercy,
  6. walking in purity of heart,
  7. being a peacemaker,
  8. and having the courage to stand honorably in the midst of persecution!

Whether people revile me for my convictions or my testimony – I will choose to rejoice and be exceedingly glad. For My Great Reward is in Heaven awaiting me… with arms wide open!

The 8 Beatitudes:

These character traits are the evidence that a person’s life has truly been revived by God. They represent the “blessed” posture… the posture that hits the mark. Some versions translate the blessed posture as the attitude that is “happy” and carries a vibrancy of spirit. Its perhaps the most effective visible sign of the empowerment of the Holy Spirit! Being a “blessed person” – means that I’ve been empowered to succeed and prosper in the Kingdom. Its the key character traits of a disciple of Jesus.

  • It is the Kingdom Lifestyle – because it displays the transformation of the heart… defining love (Jn. 15:9) and spiritual maturity (Eph. 4:11-16).
  • It is the Kingdom Lifestyle – because it characterizes the anointing placed within an ambassador of Christ carrying out their mission… co-laboring with God in the Earth (Mt. 6:10)(Mt. 11:1-19).
  • It is the Kingdom Lifestyle – because it aligns the believing heart with Kingdom purposes… cooperating with God’s Grace (Mt. 5:19 & 48)(Rom. 5:1-5) and power (Acts 1:8).

Jesus said, “Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!”  …and then it was within reach! (Mt. 4:17 & 4:23-25)
