People's Bible Notes for Matthew 5:6


Mt 5:6 Blessed [are] they which do hunger, etc. This implies the same sense of spiritual needs as verses 3 and 4. Hunger is a felt want, in this case a want of righteousness before God, the righteousness that comes from the forgiveness of sins. See Lu 15:17 Mt 5:3,4.

    Matthew 5:11 (cont.); Alongside knowing and feeling how much we fall short, and how utterly needy we are continually of the Lord's mercy and guidance in the way we walk through our days; the contemplation that we are suffering for Jesus' sake is most convicting and shines His Light into our innermost self. We are weak and faulty, and so its hard to always say that we suffer for being a Christian.
  • Cephas
    In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him. In God will I praise his word: in the LORD will I praise his word. The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
