For those who believe in Jesus, their view of life changes. No longer are poverty or riches seen in the same way.
How are those who trust in Christ to live out their lives? In these verses found in Jesus' Sermon on the Mount, we find two aspects of that way of living.
In this passage filled with names and places that we don't recognize, can't pronounce and which sound more like diseases than people, we find a message pointing to how humans, no matter what colour, language, or ethnicity, are all from the same family. We all face the same problem, and there is one provided by God who can deal with what really divides us.
It is easy in a world focused on externals and fancy presentation to think that without those the church will never grow. This passage reminds us that the power of God is found in what the world thinks is foolish and weak.
Often when a danger is around for a long time we start to live as if the danger does not exist. That is no more true than in terms of the final judgment. The flood of the world is a reminder of the fact that God will judge wickedness and evil, and at the same time it points us to the hope God provides.
