When the savior describes the life of faith, He made it so real that when He had finished, His listeners knew how to live that life. He made faith and other concepts real to His Hearers by comparing them with familiar objects and situations. Instead of describing what faith is, He described what faith is like, using picture language. These word pictures are called parables. His parables are very thought-provoking and have profound meaning.

The Beatitudes are Christ’s greeting, not only to those who believe but to the whole human family. Christ leaves us in no doubt as to traits of character that will always recognize and bless. From the ambitious favorites of the world, He turns to those whom they disown, pronouncing all blessed who receive His light and life. To the poor in spirit, the meek, the lowly, the sorrowful, the despised, the persecuted, He opens His arms of refuge, saying, “Come unto Me,…and I will give you rest.”

Throughout all time the words that Christ spoke from the mount of Beatitudes will retain their power. Every sentence is a jewel from the treasure house of truth. The principles enunciated in this discourse express His faith and hope as He pointed out class after class as blessed because having formed righteous character. Living the life of life-giver, through faith in Him, everyone can reach the standard held up to His words.

“Ye are the salt of the earth.” Matthew 5:13.
Salt is valued for its preservative properties; and when God calls His children salt, He would teach them that His purpose in making them the subjects of His grace is that they may become agents in saving others. When the Lord chose Abraham, it was not simply to be the special friend of God, but to be a medium of the peculiar privileges the Lord desired to bestow upon nations. Christ, in that last prayer with His disciples before the crucifixion, said, “For their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.” John 17:19. In like manner Christians who are purified through the truth will possess saving qualities that preserve the world from utter moral corruption.

Salt must be mingles with substance to which it is added; it must penetrate and infuse in order to preserve. So it is through personal contact and association that men are reached by the saving power of the gospel. They are not saved in masses, but as individuals. Personal influence is power. We must come closer to those whom we desire the benefit. The savors of the salt represent the vital power of the Christian-the love of Christ in the heart, the righteousness of Christ pervading the life. The love of Christ is diffusive and aggressive. If it is dwelling in us, it will flow out to others. We shall come closer to them till their hearts are warmed by our unselfish interest and love. The sincere believers diffuse vital energy, which is penetrating and imparts new moral power to the souls for whom they labor. When love fills the heart, it will flow out to others, not because of favors received from them, but because love is principal of action. Love modifies the character, govern the impulses, subdues enmity, and ennobles the affections. This love is as broad as the universe, and in harmony with the angel workers. Cherished in the heart, it sweetens the entire life and sheds its blessing upon all around.
