Matthew 5:11 - 5:13

Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

Steve Gregg continues his analysis of the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew chapter 5, focusing on verses 11-13. He emphasizes that the Beatitudes describe the character of a citizen in the kingdom of God and that faith must be accompanied by a certain state of mind. Gregg also explores the metaphor of salt and highlights the importance of being separate from the morally putrefied world. He notes that once salt loses its savor, it is worthless and cannot be restored, likening this to the irreversible loss of a believer's faith.
