Although we distinguish between what is secular and spiritual, Jesus understood what was spiritual about everything. Jesus is redefining the spiritual world of ancient Judaism and by doing so; he extends the spiritual into the secular world. In the Sermon on the Mount we glean the truths and thoughts of Jesus on how the spiritual touches our secular world. However, the meaning and power of his teachings are lost as the Gospel moves through the centuries. Reinterpreting the metaphors of salt and light, reveals both our value as Christians and how we can bring the spiritual to bear on our secular world. In our second message, we see how simple it is to have a righteousness that is greater than the Pharisees., who were some of the most “righteous” of all. It really is simple!
