Matthew 5:14–16 (NIV): 14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
We are blessed by the Kingdom. (The Beatitudes is a list of losers. It is demonstrate that no one is beyond Kingdom blessing.)
We are empowered to obey. The King calls for our allegiance and empowers us to walk in that obedience.
We are called to transformation and transforming work in this world. It is a work that will not overthrow empires. It is a work that transforms from within.
This is the work of the Kingdom of God. This is the way shown in the Sermon on the Mount.
