People's Bible Notes for Matthew 5:8


Mt 5:8 Blessed [are] the pure in heart. The Jew, under the tuition of the Pharisees, cared little for the state of the heart, so that outward forms were duly kept. Jesus, however, demands that the heart, the affections, the mind, shall be purified, as the fountain from whence flows the moral and religious life. A pure heart begets a pure life; an impure heart, a corrupt life. They shall see God. Not with the natural eye, but the spiritual vision; by faith. In the pure heart the Lord will dwell and his presence will be recognized. See Joh 14:23.

    Sin is the trangression of the law and Jesus says he came not to do away with the law but to fulfill the law but by his death we will all get a seed an incorruptible seed resulting in a birth of Christ in us and them that are born of God cannot sin thus our new innerman cannot sin simply b/c he is born of GOD, Thats how he will destroy mans propsensity to sin thus fulfilling the law

  • A disciple
    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.
