How Shall We Then Live - Jesus
These beatitudes are pronounced upon the person who is righteous, having faith and hope in God
The fundamental and essential mark of a disciple of Jesus is love. Christ instructs his followers to display love in a way that is completely counterintuitive to what the world expects. Believers are to love enemies and to repay evil with good. These principles demonstrate that disciples of Jesus are to live by the principles of the kingdom of God, rather than by the principles of the world.
