Jesus had a manifesto. He looked out over the crowd of people following Him, and decided to call a “business meeting/training session” with His disciples. This is where He laid out His vision for His customer’s experience. Jesus’ “customers” are the lost, the poor, the needy, the sick, the downtrodden – which pretty much includes everyone who has a need. He wanted His disciples to know how He felt about His customers. I am going to share Jesus’ Manifesto with you, and I think you will be surprised to learn that you already know it, BUT are you using it in your daily interactions with others? This is the challenge! Please watch my video

I once worked for a very progressive, values-based company. They did not refer to your time with them as your “employment”, but referred to it as your “experience”, and they wanted it to be a good one. No doubt Jesus desires every person on this earth has a good experience with His kingdom, which is represented by His people. My hope is that the Beatitudes will take on a new life in your Christian walk. May you never feel the same about them. May you have more clarity about them. May you fulfill Jesus’ hope in them!

Here are the Beatitudes of Matthew 5:

1“Now when he saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, 2 and he began to teach them, saying:

3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 Blessed are those who mourn,
for they will be comforted.
5 Blessed are the meek,
for they will inherit the earth.
6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they will be filled.
7 Blessed are the merciful,
for they will be shown mercy.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they will see God.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they will be called sons of God.
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12 Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”

For Your Moment of Clarity: Become more aware of your daily interactions with others. Are your representing the Kingdom of God the way Jesus’ intended? If not, watch my upcoming videos and commit afresh to the Beatitudes!

For Organizing Your Prayer Closet: As you pray about your witnessing capabilities and opportunities, pray for an opportunity to exhibit Jesus’ Manifesto. *Please note that most of your opportunities will be IN RESPONSE to someone.
