How does Jesus expect his followers to live in this world? The Sermon on the Mount is the manifesto of his Kingdom. Not a future kingdom, but his present kingdom. Satan is the ruler of this world. The Bible tells us he is the prince of this world, the prince of the power of the air, and a king. This world is enemy territory. As Jesus told Pilate, his kingdom is not of this world. Jesus’ followers represent his kingdom and are to live out its values. The Sermon on the Mount lays out the values of Christ’s kingdom. It is in living out these values that we can subvert the kingdom of this world. We are revolutionaries inside the enemy’s kingdom. But our revolution is not one of violence and force. It is a revolution of love and peace based on obedience to our Lord and living out his values.
