We have an important role to play. We were bought at a price and our lives are not our own to live. We have been crucified with Christ, rescued and redeemed and the life we now live, we live for Him.
After Jesus lays out the beatitudes for the disciples He tells them they are “the salt of the earth” and “the light of the world”. He tells them that they, and now we, have a role to play in this world. The truth is that living out these beatitudes plays a huge part in accomplishing that role. This is what He tells us. To bring glory to the Father by being Salt and Light. This week we will look at what that means, and how we are called to do it.
This series covers the beatitudes of Jesus. The Gospel of Matthew Chapter 5, verses 1-20.
Blessed are the poor in spirit,for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they who mourn,for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness,for they shall be satisfied.
Blessed are the merciful,for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure of heart,for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,for they shall be called children of God.
Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness,for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
