The Sermon on the Mount - The Beatitudes (Matthew 5:1-26)
Sunday with your kids
Lesson summary: Because of Jesus, we can be salt and light to the world.
In our bible story we learned:
1. The character of a believer.
2. The influence of a believer.
3. The righteousness of a believer.
Where is the Gospel?
How does today's Bible story fit into God's greater plan of redemption?
Jesus would be the one to fulfill the righteous life he described in the Beatitudes. We need not strive to obey Jesus’ words in the Sermon on the Mount to earn God’s favor; we strive to obey because we have already been forgiven and made righteous. Now, free of the condemnation of the law, we can follow the way of the law by following Jesus. If we should fall into sin, we need not be condemned. Instead, we confess our sin, and by the blood of Jesus our sins are covered.
