The Beatitudes of Jesus describe the inner character of those who are members of the kingdom of God. One might be tempted to think the Beatitudes can be lived in isolation—away from the world. But Christ crowns them with two brilliant and searching metaphors (salt and light) that tell us how those who live the Beatitudes must relate to the world.

Conclusion — Unworldly for the World

Bible Text
Matthew 5:13–16
13 “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.
14 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.
15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
