The text has two crucial indicative 2nd person plural statements in vv. 13-14: "you are the salt of the earth... the light of the world." The rest of the text spells out the implications of these two indicatives. The main point falls in v. 16 where the imperative "let your life shine before people" is introduced by οὕτως . The purpose that drives this imperative is stated in v. 16b: "that they may see ... and give glory to your Father in heaven."
