Passage: Matthew 5:13–5:16
Text: Matthew 5:13-16
A genuine Christian life has a radical influence on the world around them.
Functions for Salt:
- 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
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!"
