As I am working my way through the Sermon on the Mount in studying a true pro-life ethic, I was caught by Craig Keener’s words in his work on the background of the New Testament.
This particular quote on Matthew 5:13-16 is incredible:
A disciple of the kingdom who does not live like a disciple of the kingdom… is worth about as much as tasteless salt or invisible light.
What is my worth in the Kingdom? In this world? Am I truly living out the precepts of the my King?
