Who Is Salt and Light?

Matthew 5:13-16 (ESV) 13  “You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet. 14  “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.  15  Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house.  16  In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.

Blessed means “divine joy and perfect happiness” 

1 Corinthians 5:6 (ESV) Your boasting is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump?

How To Be The Salt And Light

  • Share your faith
  • Get outside the Christian bubble and take the light into the dark
  • Be THE CHURCH that shines
  • Grow in Christ and then you will show Christ!

Big Idea: When we live a blessed life, we are living a life for Christ which allows us to be the salt and light in this bitter dark world!
