Being Salt and Light

Being Salt and Light

Matthew 5:13-16
You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.

I. You are the salt of the earth (Matthew 5:13)

II. You are the light of the world (Matthew 5:14-16; John 8:12)

A. They may see your good works (Matthew 5:16; Philippians 2:15)

B. They may glorify your Father in heaven (Matthew 5:16; 1 Corinthians 6:20)

Application Questions:
