No one can enter the house of a strong man and kidnap his possessions ,unless he first binds him up. Only then can he plunder his house. The Lord Jesus by His Death and Resurrection bound Satan who controlled and directed minds and wills . Thus He regained those precious goods which are our souls, let us seek by obedience to the Word and with the help of Grace not to fall back under the tyranny of the enemy of humanity.

Matthew 5:2-3

Jesus spoke and taught them, saying, “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” The Kingdom of Heaven is communion with God, it is participation in His very life, only those who have emptied themselves of themselves, of their pride and no longer seek what the world loves then can taste the beauty of such communion.

Matthew 5:16

So let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven. We are to do good and help others not for recognition and applause but primarily so that God may be recognized as the author of the good we do and to Him give glory.

Matthew 5:17

Do not believe that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish ,but to fulfill. Jesus does not possess the revolutionary method that destroys the past, but puts Himself in continuity with what was revealed before Him and gives fulfillment ,fully realizes what was previously manifested relatively.

Matthew 5:25

Make an early agreement with your adversary while you are on the way with him, lest the adversary hand you over to the judge and the judge to the guard , and you be thrown into prison. In the path of our earthly existence , disagreements, divisions, disagreements with our neighbor are inevitable, let us always seek reconciliation , realize forgiveness with everyone, for only then can we enjoy eternal peace afterwards.

Matthew 5:27-28

Jesus said,“ You have heard that it was said,” Do not commit adultery.” But I say to you : whoever looks at a woman to lust after her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. Whoever lives sunk in selfishness, always seeking his own satisfaction ,his own interest ,his own pleasure using anyone to achieve his purpose, from this existential reality all adulterers are born.

Saturday, 15/06

Matthew 5:37

At that time Jesus said to his disciples, Let your speech be instead : “Yes ,yes,” “No, no”; the more is from the evil one.” We must enact the discipline of extreme mutual loyalty in our relationships, clarity and sincerity always create brotherhood and harmony , ambiguity, lies subterfuge are inspired by the divider.
