The Proof that Jesus is Your Attitude

Repentance is changing your life to get back to what Jesus says life should be all about.  In the BEATITUDES, Jesus is putting life back to its right-side-up position, the way His Father created it to be.   It’s His life attitude.  With this attitude, He says we are blessed regardless of the earthly and outward conditions.  It’s an attitude that Jesus is and always will be right about.  In fact, Paul said in Phil. 2:5 “Let this same attitude and purpose and [humble] mind be in you which was in Christ Jesus: [Let Him be your example in humility:].”  Whether you live in a mournful world, a poor in spirit world, and so on, God has a promise with your name attached to it called “blessed”.  Blessed means HAPPY.  I am a happy man.  “Blessed is the man whose God is the Lord.” (Psalms 144:15)  Happy is that man.   I am that man.   Happy!  Joy is the fruit of peace.  Peace is the proof Jesus is your attitude.  Years ago, we used to say, “ATTITUDE CHECK!” and everyone would respond, “PRAISE THE LORD!!!”.  The BEATITUDES contain a condition that must be met in order to be blessed.  The attitude is, regardless of anything, everything IS GONNA BE ALRIGHT…because Jesus is in this house.  In Matthew 5:16, as He continues on about what living right-side-up should look like, He says here in this verse “Let your light so shine before men (show yourself) that they may SEE your moral excellence and your praiseworthy, noble and good deeds and recognize andHONOR and praise and glorify your Father Who is in heaven.”  Along with your “show yourself” attitude, in Matthew 5:14 He says in the Message bible, “we’re going public with this.”  Go public with your repented, regenerated, and renewed life attitude.  Your attitude will develop your life-style.  Go public.  Let the world know that your life is all about Jesus.  You love Jesus, you love to act like Jesus, and you love going public with Jesus.  Then CHARGE!!!
