Salt & Light

Matthew 5:13–16—Outline not available.

Two aspects of salt and light:

  • Two arenas (earth, world)
  • Two illustrations (permeate like salt, illuminate like light)
  • Two requirements (salt must have savor, candle must be lit)
  • Two purposes (salt the earth, glorify the Father)
  • Two defeating conditions (loss of savor, hiding the light)

Related Scripture

Take Home Points

  • Christians are called to be salt, not sugar.
  • As a Christian, you have a design and a purpose: We have to act according to God’s design if we want to have any effect.
