Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

a reply to: arpgme But if you say you must do this thing (a work) to get this thing (salvation) then it is no longer grace .Salvation is by grace ,it is a gift of God , not of works .By grace you have been saved through faith and that not of yourselves it is a gift of God .
But I say unto you Love your enemies bless them that curse you do good to them that hate you and pray for them which despitefully use you and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:

If it is too much to read, just read the bold text.
There is a deception going on. The Kundalini Fire Serpent has entered the Church and is masquerading as the Holy Spirit. Christians who get baptized by it unknowingly, say that they feel 'on fire', they do not realize that the The Holy Spirit of God is the Living Water of Forgiveness and Healing.
None of this is from The Heavenly Father.
1 Kings 18:24
And call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the Lord: and the God that answereth by fire, let him be God. And all the people answered and said, It is well spoken.
Is not my word like as a fire? saith the Lord; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?
Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay.
I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:
1 Corinthians 3:13
Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.
And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.
For our God is a consuming fire.
And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.

Suggested reading - 'Fire Within" - "St. Teresa of Avila and St. John of the Cross, and the Gospel - on Prayer" By Thomas Dubay, S.M. Ignatius press. You might change your mind about what you wrote in the OP.
11 I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.
