Mt 5:11-20 very simply put

God’s way of living is better than the world’s way, even if the world bullies you (persecuted for righteousness)

  • God’s way of living is wasted if it is mixed with the world’s way (salt example)
  • God’s way of living is wasted if it is pure but hidden (light example)
  • God’s way of living is more righteous than just being religious (life, not just talk)

 

Challenge for the week: Explain how living under God’s direction is a good way to live (even when it is hard)

Come up with another example to explain how good + bad = bad (not good)

Come up with another example to explain how good is to be shared, not hidden

By the way…

Christ is our righteousness before God. Because he lived righteously, not mixing bad or hiding good, he actually fulfilled the way of God’s Kingdom. He died for our failure to live right and was raised to life for…? For us to be able to start living more and more like him! Why? It is the best way to live!! Accepting Christ’s righteousness is how we get adopted. Learning to live righteous like Christ is growing up in our adopted family. So, should we try to be righteous to get a relationship? No. Should we enjoy our relationship by trying the righteous way of life instead of the foolish way of life? I think that would be more than o.k., it is the blest way to live.
