Re:Verse reading–Matthew 5:17-48 (day six)
We were made for Kingdom living.
Right away Jesus tells us the result of Kingdom living, “In the same way let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16) Jesus identifies for us the natural display of God in Kingdom living. When we live for the Kingdom as people of the Kingdom, God is exalted; all of creation sees God’s image in us. When we get back to the heart of the matter, loving God and others, the image of God in us illuminates everything around us, and that is real living, for we were made to do just that; we were made in the image of God. We were made for Kingdom living.
