Red Letter Wisdom-Righteousness

July 22nd, 2019

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Wisdom from the Red Letters is found in Matthew 5:6.

Jesus said, “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.”

This pronouncement of blessing reflects the craving for more of Jesus in our lives. John the Baptist said about Jesus, “He must become greater; I must become less.” This can be a personal statement for us that expresses the desire for the righteousness of Christ to fill us more and more. 

The craving for righteousness will lead to more grace and more truth that will shape our lives to reflect the likeness of Jesus.

The words of Jesus inspire us to taste and see that the Lord is good in the Year of Redemption.
