The Kingdom of heaven is a practical expression of Christ living in His people by His Spirit. The humble, the meek, those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, the merciful, the pure in heart, the peacemakers and the persecuted show God’s commitment to salvation on this earth as they are the salt upon it. They are the light of God’s goodness in this dark world. God has purchased their redemption and they reflect Him in their deeds of goodness. This is all for the glory of God, in the church and in Jesus Christ, for ever and ever! Amen.

(Matt 5:1-16; 25:31-46; 2 Cor 3:18; Eph 3:21)
