Passage: Matthew 5:13–16

Title: Influence
Text: Matthew 5:13-16


A genuine Christian life has a radical influence on the world around them.

Functions for Salt:

  • preservative
  • Enhances Flavor
  • Creates a thirst

As salt of the earth, Christians give the world a taste and a glimpse of Jesus.

Functions of Light:

  • Exposes truth
  • Comforts and relieves fear
  • Attracts

As light of the world, Christians shine the light of God’s love into dark places.

Questions Regarding Salt and Light:

  • Can there be too much salt or light?
  • Some Christians inadvertently repel, instead of attract, people to God.
  • What happens if we fail to be salt or light?
  • Jesus has a stark warning

You are God’s plan to share the message of God’s extravagant love and grace.

Live a life that says, “You need to come and see how wonderful God is!"
