Morning Thought: What is the Sermon on the Mount? It’s the constitution of God’s Kingdom — our blueprint as the people of God. Starting in Matthew 5:1 and concluding at Matthew 7:29, Jesus paints a portrait of God’s people living under the government of the King of Kings. Our constitution defines who we are, and when we live in God’s way we become “the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.” (Matthew 5:14, ESV).
