The attitude that Jesus the Messiah describes in His “Sermon on the Mount” refuses to stop at surface religious externals or shallow commitment. It is not motivated by rich rewards or devastating consequences, but by a deep-seated love for Christ because of what He has done. What did He do? He did all that was necessary to remove our sin from us, reconcile us to God the Father, and adopt us as His own. The kingdom attitude is a dependent attitude that recognizes its own inadequacies, a genuine attitude that rejects sin in its early stages. It is the “attitude” that will permeate the Kingdom of God forever.
